Explorations in the Interior of the Labrador Peninsula


In 1861, Henry Hind led a two-month-long canoe expedition of the Moisie River, Quebec’s longest river, from Sept-Iles to the Ashuanipi River in Labrador. This classic book provides a unique glimpse of the raw natural beauty of the land and wildlife, and a highly empathetic description of the aboriginal peoples he encountered and worked with. Hind also writes about the fisheries and seal hunts of Newfoundland, Labrador, and Quebec. He pays particular attention to the spiritual life of both aboriginals and settlers in communities throughout Labrador, Quebec and Newfoundland’s southwest coast.
