Breakwater Folklore and Folklife Series No.1. "This collection is an attempt to bring together from various sources songs from Newfoundland's sealing tradition. [...]. We feel there are two reasons why a collection of sealing songs is a necessary publication. In the first place, these songs are historical documents and as such they enable us to learn more about the sealing industry; it is for this reason that the songs have been arranged in a rough chronological order. Second, the songs are also an expression of a fundamental part of Newfoundland's cultural heritage." from the preface.
