Newfoundland and Labrador - Insiders' Guide Professional Review and Guide
"Newfoundlanders call their homeland “The Rock”—a good name for this craggy stone that juts abruptly from the North Atlantic. And although the people are as tough as their rock, you will find few who are more open, hospitable, warm, and friendly, nor with a better sense of humor. Where else would you find towns named Jerry’s Nose, Blow Me Down, Come by Chance, or Heart’s Desire? Unusual place names aren’t Newfoundland’s only unique quality. Here you will find rare geological phenomena, icebergs drifting past on a summer day, fjords with walls so steep you’d swear you were in Norway, and a language so different that it has its own dictionary.
Where else in North America can you stand on the shore and see France? (The tiny islands of St. Pierre and Miguelon are the last remnant of French territory in North America and are officially a department of France.) This eTrail is a chapter excerpted from the book "Insiders' Guide to Eastern Canada." It is packed with information on each destination including history, getting there & around, major cities & regions, and what to do & where to stay when you get there."
