I added this book to my Amazon wishlist many years ago – not sure where I happened upon it, but I’ve long found the idea of Newfoundland interesting – it’s just so far away.
The book is a series of vignettes of the author’s trips to Newfoundland in the late 1980s to 1990s, so the source material, which aged quite a bit over the course of the time the book covers, is even more aged now. But it’s still a worthy read – it’s capturing a very traditional land’s changes as it moves into the more modern world. I can certainly see the parallels with the changes here in my home state of Maine – but they’re amplified there by Newfoundland’s distance. It’s an interesting portrait of a bygone age in a fascinating place.
