Newfoundland & Labrador Book of Everything
Author: Martha Walls
Everything you wanted to know about Newfoundland and Labrador and were going to ask anyway
DELIGHTFUL . . .
"The book looks at everything from weather, food, place names, slang, and crime to how much money Newfoundlanders and Labradorians make. Profiles of Mary Walsh, Edwin Pratt, and the Crosby dynasty are delightful. The book, filled with such variety and condensed so well, it is hard to describe and is best appreciated in the read."
— Michelle Stewart, The Aurora
A HIT . . .
"The Books of Everything are going to be a big hit. This type of book is long overdue and I wish I had thought of it first. There are thousands of interesting facts and stats about Newfoundland and Labrador for visitors and Newfoundlanders alike."
— Janice Wells, travel writer
