141 BUDGELL, Anne MUNDY, Barbara GROVE, Barbara Mundy Dear Everybody : A Woman's Journey from Park Avenue to a Labrador Trapline.First Edition
Boulder Publications, Portugal Cove-St Philip's, NF, 2013, ISBN:192709917X 
BUDGELL, Anne. Dear Everybody : A Woman's Journey from Park Avenue to a Labrador Trapline. (Portugal Cove - St. Philip's, NF) : Boulder Publications, (2013). First Printing. Pp (4),v-xvii,(1),19-319,(1) + 12-page central section of b&w photos. Maps in text. 8vo, white photo-illustrated cardcovers. "In 1944, Manhattan socialite Barbara Mundy travelled to tiny North West River, Labrador, to volunteer with the Grenfell Mission. She didn't expect to feel so at home in the wilds of Labrador, more than she ever had in New York's high society. She discovered a love for hunting, canoeing, and camping—and for fur trapper Russell Groves. During her first two years in North West River, Barbara wrote detailed carbon-copied letters to 'Everybody.' Anne Budgell uses these letters, as well as a diary Barbara kept during the two winters she spent on the trapline with her husband, to tell her remarkable story. 'Dear Everybody' takes readers to a remote place and time, through the eyes of a born adventurer." - from the rear cover. Chapters : 1. The Unbeaten Path; 2. Sugar Barons and Railroad Kings; 3. The Farthest North Enterprise of Mercy; 4. St. Anthony Wopess 1935; 5. Thousand Nine, Park Avenue; 6. Down on the Labrador; 7. Airport in a Berry Patch; 8. Downalong and Upalong; 9. A Real Life ...

Toronto: Royal Ontario Museum, (1992). First Printing. Pp (4),v-xiv,1314. Illustrated. 4to, illustrated black card covers. Royal Ontario Museum, Publications in Art and Archaeology. "Thecaribou hunt was an essential form of life support for the Naskapi, Montag nais, and Cree hunters of the vast Quebec-Labrador peninsula. The hunters believeed that if they honoured their quarry by dressing in coats painted with powerful motifs, the caribou would be pleased to give themselves to the hunters, assuring a successful hunt. This book presents a group of these rare and beautiful painted caribou-skin coats dating from between 1700 and 1930. In the course of her research, the author carefully studied many of the150 known surviving coats, which are scattered through museum collections in North America and Europe. here 60 of the most outstanding examples are described and illustrated, along with diagrams indicating how the skins werecut to shape the coats, and hundreds of drawings showing the subtleties of the patterning. Introductory sections provide information on the ritual us e of the coats, their history, their construction and decoration, and the significance of the design motifs and colours. The coats show the development of the art form and the cuts reflect the changing styles of contemporary European fashion." - from rear cover. Vg. 30.00

Longmans Canada Limited, Toronto, 1963, 
BUTLER, Kenneth C. Igloo Killinek. Illustrated by William Wheeler. Toronto:Longmans Canada Limited, (1963). First Printing. Pp (10),1-164,(2). Map. 8 vo, cream cloth, black lettering to spine. O'Dea 3599. No.6 in the CanadianPageant Series. "This is an absolutely factual account of the year that th e author spent at Port Burwell, the first detachment set up by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the eastern Arctic. It was the year 1920-21 and, apart from the kindly Moravian missioanry, his wife, and the Hudson's Bay Company post manager, the entire population of the settlement was Eskimo. Although the patrol was 'essentially a holding operation,' Constable Butler, then nineteen, felt very naturally that 'to open the last great northern frontier was real trail-blazing!' Port Burwell, which the Eskimos call Killinek, meaning Land's End, is at the extreme northern tip of Labrador, more than a hundred miles above the tree line. This true record of life there, enlivened as it is by hunts for walrus and seal, by encounters with arctic bears, wolves and killer whales, is more fascinating than any glamourized storycould possibly be. The RCMP welcome it as the only narrative covering this period of the Force's history." - from the dust-jacket. Very good in edgew orn dustjacket. 30.00

Pp [i]-viii,(6,maps),[1]-363,(7),+ 16 pp photos. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to front cover and spine. "Although the inclusion of Newfoundland and Labrador as part of Confederation is of national significance, it represents only a small portion of the province's past. Sean Cadigan ha written a definitive history of one of North America's most distinct and beautiful regions. The site of the continent's first European settlement one thousand years ago and a former colony of England, this easternmost point of the continent has had a fascinating history in part because of is position as the gateway between North America and Europe. Examining the region from prehistoric times to the present, 'Newfoundland and Labrador' is not only a comprehensive history of the province, but an illuminating portrait of the Atlantic world and of the European colonization of the Americas. The book traces the major developments in the region's history, from the first European settlemetns, the extinction of the indigenous Beothuk by European settlers, the conflicts between settlers and the imperial government, to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment's near annihilation at the Battle of the Somme, the rise of Newfoundland nationalism, Joey Smallwood's case for confederation, and the economic disappointments that resulted after Confederation. Paying particular attention to the ways inwhich Newfoundland and Labrador's history has been shaped by its environme nt, this study considers how natural resources suhc as the Grand Banks, thecod fishery, and off-shore oil have affected the region and its inhabitant s." - from the introductory preamble. Contents : Introduction: Scarce Environmental Leeway, Nationalism, and the Long Term in Newfoundland and Labrador. 1. The First Peoples by the Sea. 2. The European Encounter. 3.
