" The provocative and long-overdue book about how Newfoundlanders were deceived by Canada and Britain, now available as a trade paperback. The true story, drawn from official documents and hours of personal interviews, of how Newfoundland and Labrador joined Confederation and became Canada's 10th province in 1949. A rich cast of characters--hailing from Britain, America, Canada and Newfoundland--battle it out for the prize of the resource-rich, financially solvent, militarily strategic island. The twists and turns are as dramatic as those in any spy novel and extremely surprising, since the "official" version of Newfoundland history has held for over 50 years almost without question."

It may be a good read, but the print is too small!
