About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1947, this is a two-volume work on the physical and human geography of the Newfoundland and Labrador region. The work was based upon two expeditions to the region, led by the author, in 1937 and 1939. Whilst further research was prevented by the outbreak of WWII, a large amount of fresh information was found through exploration of unmapped areas and interaction with indigenous populations. Numerous illustrative figures are contained throughout, including a large number of photographs. This set will be of value to anyone with an interest in Newfoundland and Labrador.
