This is a book of “short stories” that tell of life in a land of awesome beauty, of life lived, often exposed, along the east and north coastline of Labrador in Canada. These “stories” are all true and reflect the lives of the people who live here and a northern nurse who grew to love them, and their land, a young man from the “mainland” of central Canada who served them, and found his home among them.
These are also “stories” of a group of people who leave the comforts and glaring lights of the city and move to this land and here in its quietness, and exposure, discover peace and healing in their disquieted lives, and learn from the Newfoundlanders and Inuit values that impact all of them.
Within the context of these “stories” Reg has woven brief commentaries of several significant social upheavals that have impacted Newfoundlanders along these coasts, and of their own faith, courage and initiatives whereby they have risen above these intrusive and traumatic events spun by an uncaring and manipulative government bureaucracy.
