About the Authors
Peter GardPeter Gard was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and moved to Newfoundland in 1977. He has lived in Petty Harbour - Maddox Cove since 1986. His start as a writer came with Joey Smallwood's Encyclopedia of Newfoundland in 1982. He worked as a photographer and freelance writer, food and culture critic before catching the hiking bug in a big way. In 1994 he began organising volunteers to work on the East Coast Trail and in 1995 became the founding president of the East Coast Trail Association. He has worked as a manager for the association since 1997.

Bridget NeameBridget E. Neame was born to a farming family in Kent, England, in 1954. She grew up surrounded by animals, bird- watching in southern England and tramping the hills of western Ireland. Her love for remote country and the sea led her to a marine biology degree from the University of Liverpool. She has travelled far and wide in Europe, Israel, the U.S., Mexico, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. This book grew out of her love for the wildness of Newfoundland. Bridget lives with her family in Middle Cove, Newfoundland.
