Explorations In The Interior Of The Labrador Peninsula
Hind imparts the vivid beauty of the land, while offering revealing portraits of the lives of both Aboriginal peoples and settler communities.
By Henry Youle Hind
The rugged landscape of Labrador and the north shore of Quebec is the setting for this thrilling account of a canoe expedition along the Moisie River to western Labrador in 1861. While challenging the waters of this magnificent river, Henry Hind witnessed the raw beauty of the wildlife and untouched landscape of Labrador.
Hind, who travelled along the coasts of Newfoundland, Labrador, and Quebec, writes eloquently about the hardships of fishermen, sealers, and hunters. He also demonstrates how their spirituality and keen sense of humour helped them overcome adversity.
Hind's brother, William, illustrates Explorations with his brilliant, textured paintings and intricate line drawings.
