"We have here an admirable and most readable 'amalgam' of two previous autobiographies of Wilfred Grenfell, Forty Years for Labrador and Labrador Doctor. [...] It is not merely or even primarily a stirring and moving narrative of high adventure and devoted service, but much more, the self-revelation of a remarkable man, of a nature simple and almost casual yet grimly purposeful - of a dreamer who translated vision into action - of an adventurous boy who combined with his disconcerting inconsistencies and his sudden impulses a cool and abiding purpose." - from the Introduction by Sir Henry Richards, C.B., LL.D.
