“The Day Grenfell Cried” is an interesting read that sheds
light on the conflict that arose when the philanthropic efforts of Dr. Wilfred Grenfell
clashed with the business interests of merchants operation on the Labrador
Coast and resulted in a government enquiry. Battle Harbour, once known as the capital of
Labrador and now a designated national historic site and district and important
tourist destination, played a central role in these happenings from beginning
to end. Gordon Slade, Chairman Battle Harbour Trust.
“The Day Grenfell Cried” is Earl Pilgrim’s true story of
what happened when Dr. Wilfred Grenfell helped the poor people of northern
Newfoundland and Labrador. Another great book from Newfoundland and Labrador’s
favourite story teller.
