Book Description
In 1909, fur buyer William Oliver Kennedy Ross travelled overland from his home in Quebec City along the North Shore of the St. Lawrence into Southern Labrador and across the Strait of Belle Isle to the west coast of Newfoundland. His main purpose was to purchase furs from local trappers and middlemen. During his travels, he occasionally bought other items from local people including heirlooms that today would be considered antiques.

The journal represents a day-to-day narrative of his activities over a period of nearly three months and a distance of 1,600 kilometres.
