From the Coast to Far Inland

  Author:   William Rompkey    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

From the landing of the Vikings these stories trace the dramatic evolution of the relationship between aboriginals and non-aboriginals in Labrador; they trace the progress of Labrador from the British conquest to the flowering of the Labrador identity and the rise of the New Labrador Party in the late 20th century. In between are treks through various parts and times of Labrador
.
Among the writings: Pierre Berton tracks through iron ore country; Peter Newman paints Lord Strathcona and the Hudson’s Bay Company warts and all; Elliott Merrick, Tony Paddon, the Labrador doctor, and Elizabeth Goudie describe the joys and hardships of life in the central Labrador plateau; Norman Duncan and Michael Crummey bring to life the humour and pathos of those who clung so tenaciously to a barren and bountiful coast; and Richard Gwyn, an adopted son of the province, sketches the rise of the New Labrador Party, a political force bursting with resentment against the neglect and indifference of a distant capital during the last days of Joey Smallwood.
