I hope you will do what you can during these few days to fill in the Labrador record with your recollections and reflections. This too will be an important contribution to Labrador history.

I just didn't "get" this book. It appears to be a combination of an unfocused travel diary and a rambling series of investigative essays. I totally accept the possibility that this is brilliant and creative and over my head, but I missed whatever good qualities this has. I couldn't follow much of the disjointed history of the supposed murders, nor do I feel that I got to know even one character.
Keep in mind that this full-priced book is only 36 pages. Note for buyers of the Kindle version: it combines poorly formatted text with images of text. To read the text-images, I had to view it sideways and pinch and stretch it to be large enough to see.
Perhaps the story comes alive in the subsequent five volumes? Based on volume one, I have no reason to read further.
