Description

Jack Fitzgerald's Treasury of Newfoundland Stories Volume I: True Crime and Adventure is a thrilling collection of Newfoundland stories, featuring some of the most spectacular crimes, brutal murder cases and hangings in Newfoundland history. Equalling as compelling are the narratives of blizzards, cyclones, hurricanes and avalanches. Each story has been extensively researched and is constructed based on information gathered from official court records, police records, government documents, newspapers, magazines, books and personal interviews.
