“Icebergs are beyond our control and influence. They are huge, completely clean, spectacular to look at and are rare or absent in all populated places in the world except Newfoundland and Labrador. So why not write about them and get the story out . . .”?xml:namespace prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Stephen E. Bruneau
Icebergs of Newfoundland and Labrador first appeared in booklet form in 1998, which has been informally reprinted and distributed with improvements each year since. The original intent of the booklet was to provide boat tour operators with correct interpretive information for tourists. The broad interest in the subject and the success of the booklet has led to the production of this first colour version. The project is ongoing as reader feedback and new information is obtained and prepared for improved future editions.
