Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0973027118, Paperback)

Originally published in 1895, A History of Newfoundland by Daniel Woodley Prowse is recognized as one of the best histories to be written during the colonial era. It is also regarded for being the most definitive history of Newfoundland and Labrador.

But it is much more than a history text. Within its pages, Prowse imparts a passion for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, an instinct for justice, and a knack for telling a good story, A History of Newfoundland remains a standard reference book for history buffs, academics, and geneologists. It is also ideal for those who are curious about the history and culture of Newfoundland and Labrador. Meticulously researched, A History of Newfoundland has hundreds of illustrations and text of original letters gleaned from European archives. Extensive histories of the French islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon, as well as Labrador and the founding churches, are included.

Leslie Harris, who served as president of Memorial University of Newfoundland from 1981 – 1990, provides an insightful and illuminating foreword.
