More info

The fishery, the seal cull, the settlement, the culture—the history of the province 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 first of two volumes, author Calvin D. Evans covers every coast and bay from Cape Spear to Boyd’s Cove in a sweeping chronicle of fine craftsmanship and immense productivity. While telling the stories of some of the island’s greatest shipbuilders, Evans also provides exhaustive lists of every builder on record—repopulating a nearly forgotten part of our past.

And in a bonus chapter, architect Philip Evans details the work of the Culture of Outports Project, shining a light on this important community-build initiative inspired by the legacy of the master shipbuilders.

Impeccably researched and contextualized, Calvin D. Evans’s Master Shipbuilders of Newfoundland and Labrador offers a necessay and indispensable addition to the understanding of our province’s history.
