The best-selling biography of Wilfred Grenfell, back in print


"A tale well-told ... one welcomes the revival of a hero who was a legend within living memory." The Northern Mariner "This critical yet empathetic biography should be required reading for those interested in outpost life in Newfoundland or Labrador in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries." Canadian Book Review "A meticulous and fascinating biography ... there is little doubt in my mind that this will become the standard biography of Grenfell for years to come." Newfoundland Quarterly "Well-written, informative, and a joy to read." Social History of Medicine "There is an abundance of social history here and all of it is worth knowing." The Globe and Mail "The book's strength is its definitive portrait of Grenfell himself - willful, disorganized, childish, authoritarian, enthusiastic and genuine, a son of the 19th century who had to be shunted aside as 20th century professionals secularized the mission and saved it from its founder's mismanagement." The Toronto Star "Rompkey's book is an impressive portmanteau of long-needed facts about Grenfell and his dedicated band, rather than just successful evocation of a remarkable individual." The Independent
