Who were the first settlers in Newfoundland and Labrador? What is the origin of the Pink, White, and Green flag? Was Newfoundland and Labrador poor prior to Confederation?
These are some of the questions answered in A Short History Of Newfoundland and Labrador, a book that traces the growth of human settlement from Aboriginal pioneers to the current era. This is a lively, informative volume, written by professional historians.
Members of Newfoundland Historical Society contributed their talents to this book, including Terry Bishop-Stirling, James K. Hiller, Olaf U. Janzen, Peter E. Pope, Lisa Rankin, and Jeff A. Webb.
