Book Description
Published first in 1884, Henri de la Chaume's charming account of his sojourn in Newfoundland appears here for the first time in English. A mere twenty years of age when he came to the colony, de la Chaume gives a unique and unusual perspective on the politics, geography and social life of the bustling port of St. John's. The translation is "a fresh and vibrant piece of writing in its own right," and the introduction brings new insight into the life of the young trade attache.
