The Forgotten Labrador recounts the history of a remarkable area of Canada the Quebec part of the Labrador coast that extends eastward from Kegashka to Blanc Sablon. Cleophas Belvin describes the arrival of the Aboriginals and the activities of the Breton and Basque shermen and French- and English-speaking merchants from Quebec City who controlled the region for more than one hundred and fty years. He paints a vivid picture of the lifestyle and living conditions of the early French- and English-speaking pioneers and their descendants offering an analysis of why they settled in the region and how they dealt with the precariousness of the seal salmon and cod sheries. The Forgotten Labrador also explores the role of the Anglican and Catholic missionaries the establish- ment of educational medical transportation and communication services and the various government and local initiatives that were undertaken to provide the people with some form of economic prosperity. Belvin lucratively mines the Labrador Boundary Documents and related data to reconstruct the French Regime in the region between 1660 and 1760. He appreciates the tremendous importance of the American shery the difcul- ties of bringing some measure of law and order to the lower north shore and the conicting interests of institutions such as the Roman Catholic Church the Church of England and the Grenfell mission on the coast.
