The Oldest City is an epic drama, featuring stoic fishermen, intrepid aviators, brilliant statesmen, devoted clerics, hard-working business people, and brave social reformers. The 400-year-long tale also includes rapacious merchants, destructive fires, shameless politicians, religious bigots, and warriors. In his meticulously researched book O’Neill illustrates the people and events that have made St. John’s a truly unique city on the North American landscape.
Paul O’Neill worked as an actor and radio and television broadcaster for thirty-five years. In 2004 he was given the Freedom of the City Award by the City of St. John’s, in honour of his lifelong commitment to promoting and preserving the culture of North America’s oldest city.
