      commend the book to its readers in the knowledge that its author,
      having had access to the family and Grenfell Associations' documents,
      and having spent some time on the Coast, has given us an accurate and

      introduced to Labrador by Grenfell, an amazing man, "Grenfell met with
      opposition from governments and from unscrupulous traders who
      exploited the fishermen. This biography tells of his struggle against

      in sub-arctic seas. It is the story of man who aspired to live as
