I read the original edition. This is an interesting book. It is a memoir/autobiography of the life of the wife of a trapper/hunter in Labrador in the first part of the 20th century. She works incredibly hard & constantly & raises her babies & keeps them warm & not eaten by flies & etc. The most detail is of a few years in North Labrador in a very isolated setting.

In my dreams I'll go back to when I was a lad, / to the old country home; there was Mother and my Dad, / such kind, friendly neighbours make you think you're their own. / I'll keep dreaming of you, my riverside home. -- adapted from a song by John Chaulk

Originally published in 1973, Woman of Labrador is Elizabeth Goudie's enduring and candid story of her pioneering life as a trapper's wife in the early 1900s. She was left alone much of the year to rear eight children while her husband worked the traplines. Independent and resourceful, Elizabeth fulfilled her multiple roles as homemaker, doctor, cook, hunter, showmaker, and seamstress for her growing family. In the span of her eighty years, she witnessed radical changes to Labrador.
