THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN IN NEWFOUNDLAND discover many things about Newfoundlanders:
- They are resilient, colourful, musical, humorous, historical, proud, extroverted and great storytellers
- Geography, weather, location and a certain amount of isolation have imbued a fierce pride and social determination in those who call “The Rock” home
- Annie Proulx says this about Newfoundland in the novel The Shipping News
It takes some time to get used to the rock, It’s a place like no other. The people that came here, came by accident; those that stayed. strange things can happen . . .Omens, restless spirits, magic . . .
