102 MacFADYEN, Janet Newfoundland Journal : poetry
Killick Press, St. John's, 2009, ISBN:9781897174371 
MacFADYEN, Janet. A Newfoundland Journal : poetry. St. John's : Killick Press, 2009. Pp (6),1-57,(5). 8vo, illustrated blue card covers, lettered in black and white. "A Newfoundland Journal is a book-length poem drawn from the author's travels through the province's western edges in 2003. Janet MacFadyen is "from away," and the poem weaves disparate images of RV-packed ferries and backpack-loaded tourists with stories of courage and resilience from the long and continued history of Newfoundland. Through the eyes of the speaker and the voices of Newfoundlanders, the poem investigates our notions of history and belonging, as well as our position in the natural world. Ultimately, this is a poetry of spiritual connection to time and landscape."(from the back cover. Very good. 10.00
