Gerald Penney edited a near-complete copy of Jackson's manuscript for this edition, the full work having been lost in a fire.

"Shortly after Conne River's 'recognition' as a native community in 1973 (under a federal / provincial agreement), federal funds were secured to research Micmac use and occupancy of Newfoundland. To begin the daunting task a 25-year-old university student from Pincher Creek, Alberta, was hired. Doug Jackson lived in Conne River from 1976 to 1981, collecting material from a variety of written sources and through extensive interviews. He recorded his findings in a 350-page typescript. While Jackson's findings were incorporated in a series of political and legal documents of the day, what was presumed to be the only copy of the manuscript was lost in a fire. A near-complete copy of the Jackson manuscript was brought to light by Josep M. Jeddore of Milltown in 1992 and presented to then Chief Shayne McDonald." - from Penney's preface.
