Title
The fishery, the seal cull, the settlement, the culture—the history of Newfoundland and Labrador has been shaped and witnessed from the deck of sea-going vessels, and those vessels were sparred with local timbers, planked and rigged by the hands of our master shipbuilders. In this companion volume to its highly successful predecessor, author Calvin Evans covers every coast and bay from Notre Dame Bay to Petty Harbour and includes all of Labrador in a chronicle of craftsmanship and productivity. Impeccably researched and contextualized, and once again featuring a bonus chapter by Philip Evans, Master Shipbuilders of Newfoundland and Labrador, Volume 2 offers an indispensable addition to the story of our past.
