The story of Newfoundland and Labrador is told in the region's place names, from Deadman's Cove to Paradise, from Famine Gut to Heart's Delight, and in the family histories of those rugged settlers who chose these names for their communities. It is a land of contradictions. This diversity is also reflected in the region's architecture, with strong cultural links to Ireland and West County England. This fascinating book will delight both "true Newfoundlanders" and those of us from "away."
