Book Description
In 1933, Elisabeth Greenleaf and Grace Mansfield's volume Ballads and Sea Songs of Newfoundland was published for the first time. This volume was reprinted in 1968 and in the thirty-six years which have since passed, interest in and research on vernacular song in Newfoundland has flowered.

"Beautiful Songs of love and larceny, crisis and celebration, bereavement and betrayal. This collection demonstrates how little the emotional map of Newfoundland has changed in 500 years. A family treasure."
Sean McCann, Great Big Sea

"This book is a by-product of the so-called drudgery of school teaching. No one but a school-teacher could have obtained in so short a time a knowledge of the character and habit of thought of the Newfoundlanders. It is a tribute also to Dr. Grenfell's work, for the idea of such a book grew up form work under his summer mission."
May 26, 1932
H. N. MacCracken
