Title
The Forgotten Labrador: Kegashka to Blanc Sablon
Abstract
A history of the Quebec part of the Labrador coast. The author describes the arrival of the Aboriginal communities, the activities of the Breton and Basque fishermen, and the French- and English-speaking merchants from Quebec City who controlled the region for over one hundred and fifty years. He also describes the lifestyles and living conditions of the early French- and English-speaking pioneers and their descendants. The book explores the role of the Anglican and Catholic missionaries, and the establishment of educational, medical, transportation and communication services to this remote part of the province.
