In 2009, author Ted Rowe published his fascinating book about the transatlantic cable called Connecting the Continents. The narrative of that 1866 miracle of engineering brought the outport of Heart's Content back to the world's attention. Now, in a companion volume to his earlier book, Rowe introduces us to the characters who shaped this remarkable community from its earliest days up to the 1970s. Readers will meet pioneer merchants, rogue priests, and community stalwarts. And they will hear the extraordinary stories of how these people shaped a Newfoundland outport through more than three centuries.

About the author

Ted Rowe writes, travels, plays music and tries to find time to enjoy good food and wine. His previous books, Connecting the Continents: Heart's Content and the Atlantic Cable and Heroes & Rogues, a community history of Heart's Content, explored life in North America's pioneer cable town. In Newfoundland, Ted and his wife Maureen divide their time between St. John's and Heart's Content, and the winter finds them in Palm Desert, California.
