Lawrence Millman is very knowledgeable about the different floras and faunas in these islands and coutries and also knows much about geology. He felt he needed to take the journey because of his love of these places; plus he wanted to experience what the Vikings saw and experienced on their journies to what was in their time unknown places. Then he wrote this great book so others can also take this trip without ever leaving their comfortable homes and lives.
Mr. Millman is at ease with the animals and the natives and interacts with both groups.. At times he goes to their homes, eats their food which most of us would fear to do with people of unknown customs and ways of eating plus the type of foods these natives eat. He walks all over these rocky, barren lands eschewing renting a car for he wants to experience all types of weather, all hard climbs. Looking from the window of a bus is not for him.
However, toward the end of his journey though he really doesn't want to, as he prefers to travel as the Vikings did ,he takes planes and a bus to get to Labrador.
This is one great trip. I enjoyed the book and will read and reread it. Mr Millman is a man of courage, adventure and love of life. He writes about these lands just as he sees them and not through rose colored glasses. Because of his book I
was able to walk through cold lands, visit strange places and peoples, and take slow boat trips to tiny strange villages.
This book could be called Lost Places because they are not on the tourist trips and few people know or care about them except only the indigenous peoples and those like Lawrence Millman.
he takes planes and buses to get to Labrador.
The used book came in very good condition. I was proud to send it on.
