Tour NewfoundlandFodor's Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, with Newfoundland and Labrador An area of great natural beauty, Atlantic Canada (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador) can be a phenomenal adventure: kayaking, whale-watching, skiing, and dog sledding are just a few of the ways to dive in headfirst. White sandy beaches, lobsters in pot, and cosy inns steeped in history make it easy to have a relaxing break, too. Prince Edward Island has uncrowded beaches and the warmest water north of the Carolinas, ideal for swimming, canoeing or windsurfing. Newfoundland and Labrador is a world unto itself, where humpback whales feed nearby and 10,000-year-old icebergs cruise by fishing villages. To make your trip unforgettable, our local writers list the best hotels, restaurants, attractions, activities, where to sample the local cuisine and where to shop for local crafts, including pottery, blown glass, hand-knits and hooked rugs. Before you leave for coastal Canada, be sure to pack your Fodor's guide to ensure you don't miss a thing. Tour Atlantic Canada.

Celebrating Atlantic CanadaCelebrating Atlantic Canada In Canada's Atlantic provinces it is often said, by visitors and locals alike, that you can point a camera in almost any direction, click, and take home a picture-perfect memory. Jack Chiang has done just that, but with the precision and artistry that have earned him accolades for his ability to capture the perfect picture at the perfect time and a talent honed over a lifetime of photography that has secured his reputation as "a photographer's photographer" in the eyes of his peers. In New Brunswick, Chiang offers up images, not just of St.Andrews-by-the-Sea, Moncton's Tidal Bore and Magnetic Hill, the "flower pots" of Hopewell, and the historic streets of Saint John, but of Acadian festivals, the salmon rich waters of the Miramichi and Restigouche Rivers, the Fundy tides, and a myriad of towns and villages off the beaten track. In Nova Scotia, Chiang's photos of Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, Kejimkujik and the Cabot Trail tell untold stories, while others open the viewers' eyes to "Canada's Ocean Playground" and its interior with images seldom if ever seen before. Prince Edward Island and the island of Newfoundland are photographed by Chiang in kind. The red clay soil of Anne of Green Gables' country, the springtime icebergs off St. John's, the moose, the whales, the immensity and magnetic sweep of Labrador are presented in magnificent colour. So too, the beaches, flora and fauna of P.E.I. sit side by side with Chiang's brilliantly captured images of Lucy Maude Montgomery's "Green Gables" and rich red soil of the Island farms.

New BrunswickMcCully's New Brunswick: Historic Aerial Photographs 1931-1939 During the Great Depression, promoter, salesman and pilot Richard Thorne McCully became an aviator pioneer, capturing much of the Maritime region from the air. Along with photographer Harold Reid, and Pilot Marty Fraser, McCully spent the early 1930s flying over Atlantic Canada. The photographs they took offer a rare glimpse of prominent homes, vibrant businesses, churches, farms, and waterfronts that are no longer standing or have been significantly altered. Each photograph has been annotated with the natural features, architecture, streetscapes, industries, sporting events and other pastimes, and colourful characters depicted. These unique bird's-eye views from 1931 to 1939, capture the feeling of that first day in May 1931 when McCully's small twin-engine took off from the tiny Moncton airport..

Atlantic CanadaMoon Handbooks Atlantic Canada: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Canada, the sea-bound northeastern corner of North America, is a picture-book painting, a spacious canvas splashed with brightly coloured seaports, red-clay roads, boulder-cluttered coasts, shadowy forests, and undulating fields of barley and potatoes, all of it framed by the variegated blues of the sky and surrounding seas. Expert travel writers Mark Morris and Andrew Hempstead help you have a truly personal experience in this captivating region. Suggested travel strategies and lists of must-see sights provide you with the real insights so you can decide where you should go, stay, and eat - without hassles or regrets. Mark and Andrew detail where to hike, climb, mountain bike, snowshoe, and more. This work is complete with maps, photographs, illustrations, and special emphasis on leading destinations such as Fundy National Park, Kings Landing Historical Settlement, St. Andrews, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax Citadel, Lunenburg, Cabot Trail, Prince Edward Island National Park, and Gros Morne National Park.

Newfoundland Fishing VoyageSea of Heartbreak: An Extraordinary Account of a Newfoundland Fishing Voyage In the summer of 1998, onboard a small boat on an immense and unforgiving sea, Michael Dwyer sails, with seven other crewmen, to Labrador on a turbot fishing expedition. This is a personal account of his experience aboard the Styx, a 65 foot steel trawler, as it makes its way to the highly competitive fishing grounds.

Unknown LabradorA Woman's Way Through Unknown Labrador In 1905 Mina Benson Hubbard became the first white person to cross Labrador, documenting her travels in the classic A Woman's Way Through Unknown Labrador. This reissue, edited and fully annotated by Sherrill Grace, makes the complete work available for the first time since the original 1908 publication and features an introduction that situates Hubbard's writing in the context of her life and times, making clear how unusual - and unexpected - it was for a woman to undertake such an expedition, let alone going on to write and lecture about it. In 1903 Hubbard's husband, Leonides, starved to death on his cartographic and ethnographic expedition to Labrador. Hubbard decided to complete her husband's work, becoming a skilled explorer and cartographer in her own right. She set out in July 1905 and with the help of George Elson, a Metis guide who had been employed by her husband on the original trip, and three other guides completed her expedition in record time with significant results, including completing the first accurate map of the Labrador river system, thus correcting the earlier map that had led to her husband's death. Her original photographs and the map are reproduced in this volume. The resulting description of her trip gives us the perspective of a Victorian woman on the landscape, the people she met - including Innus, Crees, Inuits, and Metis - and the journey itself. The book also includes her husband's diary and Elson's description of her husband's journey, providing a valuable and unusual opportunity to compare three accounts of the exploration of Labrador. Reading Hubbard's account we see her gradually come to terms with her husband's death, gain confidence in her own abilities, and discover not just Labrador but herself. She writes about her experiences with sensitivity, speaking to us of a place that has been changed almost beyond recognition by so-called progress.

A Voyage to NewfoundlandA Voyage to New Found Land Newfoundland, a former British colony, has historically been seen through English imperial eyes. In his entertaining travelogue, French geologist, cartographer, and oceanographer Julien Thoulet portrays the Newfoundland of 1886 from a French Enlightenment and Romantic perspective in which scientific discourse and historical and philosophical reflection are central. In his translation of Thoulet's travelogue, Scott Jamieson remains faithful to the elegance and wit of the original. A Voyage to Newfoundland is full of intriguing detail about the landscape, local culture, origins of place names, flora, oceanography, and state of the French fishery. Several chapters are devoted to the fisheries and controversies over their exploitation, including ominous signs of early failure of the inshore cod fishery. A Voyage to Newfoundland is illustrated with forty-two of Thoulet's own photographs, only four of which were part of the original French publication. Jamieson also provides a detailed introduction and annotations explaining obscure technical and historical references. This book is a timely addition to our understanding of Newfoundland's storied past.

Great Newfoundland Seal HuntVikings of the Ice Being the Log of a Tenderfoot on the Great Newfoundland Seal Hunt This book was written as the result of some six weeks' experience on two sealing steamers, the Terra Nova and the Eagle, out of St. John's, Newfoundland. Its purpose is to fill a gap which has persisted astonishingly long. For many years the Newfoundland seal hunt has been the greatest hunt in the world, and that so little has been written about it is a mystery. The world as a whole knows little of it. Even many Newfoundlanders of the better class remain comparatively ignorant of this gorgeous epic of violence, hardship and bloodshed. In so far as personal observation can avail, I have tried to record and portray all the essential features of Newfoundland sealing. Contents: Prelusions; The World's Greatest Hunt; Northward Ho!; Shaking Down; Into the Ice; Worship 'Tweendecks; Baptism of Blood; The Life of a Seal; The Hunt Continues; An Evening with the Muses; Laboring On; Past and Present; A Touch of Near-Tragedy; A Visit from the Air; Odds and Ends; The Sealer and His Ways; Bombs; A Bit of History; A Short Chapter on a Long Sunday; Powers of Darkness; Mucking Along; A Brush with Hoods; Gunners and Dogs!; Newfoundland Contrasts; A Newfoundland Outport; Trailing the Herd; And Still We Slaughter; Tails and Tobacco; and Homeward Bound.

North Atlantic RunNorth Atlantic Run: The Royal Canadian Navy and the Battle for the Convoys At the height of the Battle of the Atlantic, half of the Allied convoy escorts on the main trade routes were Canadian, but history has largely ignored their contribution and their bitter sacrifices of their struggle against U-boat attacks in 1942 and 1943. In "North Atlantic Run", noted military historian, Marc Milner tells the story of this drama at sea, detailing the dynamic role played by Canada and the Royal Canadian Navy in the battle for the convoys. It is a Canadian Naval Classic.

Guardian Of The GulfGuardian of the Gulf: Sydney, Cape Breton and the Atlantic Wars One of the great untold Canadian military stories revolves around the eastern seaport of Sydney, Nova Scotia. This book offers a vivid and long-overdue account of Sydney harbour's role, and the importance of its coal deposits, in North Atlantic strategy and military operations from the Anglo-French wars in the 19th century to the end of the Cold War in the 1990s. More than two centuries of activity in and around Sydney harbour came to a head during the world wars, when Sydney became a major convoy port in the merchant-ship lifeline that sustained Britain with supplies from North America. A bastion for the air and naval forces that pursued German submarines in the waters off the coast of Canada, Sydney was also a major industrial trial centre that produced enormous quantities of critically important coal and steel. Exploring the role of army, navy, airforce and merchant marine, Tennyson and Sarty offer richly detailed information on garrisons, fortifications, base development and maritime warfare. Set against the context of national and alliance policy-making in London, Ottawa and Washington, the story moves deftly between the larger and smaller pictures, making this a work of both colourful immediacy and broad interpretation..
