Newfoundland's Unspoiled Wilderness is the setting for this John G. Millais classic, first published in 1907. We follow the author as he tracks caribou throughout the interior of Newfoundland - an untamed region that was virtually unknown to aboriginal peoples. He also chronicles the hunting of whales - a dramatic adventure from another era. Through his writing, Millais inspires us to experience the thrill of tracking wild animals, while at the same time imparting the splendour of nature and its creations. At times humorous, and always entertaining, Newfoundland and Its Untrodden Ways by John G. Millais offers unparalleled insight into the soul of Newfoundland and its people. More than 140 illustrations, including 6 color plates.
"Newfoundland and its Untrodden Ways, here reprinted a full century after its appearance, is both a classic work of its period and an irreplaceable commentary in our understanding of our island's recent past and our culture's unique signature."
