"...Superstitions aside, it speaks to the power of the diary that the unrelenting sense of doom that hung over the voyage came through so clearly despite time and translation. 'Voyage With the Labrador Eskimos' is a reminder that there is still a great deal of work to do on the history of this province and a lot of fascinating material still to be found." - Dr. Robin McGrath, Labrador Inuit Exploited, The Telegram (May 17, 2014), St. John's, NL "I read the book 'Voyage With the Labrador Eskimos, 1880-1881' all in one go. What a sad story and all this because they neglected to administer a vaccine which was available. This book, a particular and a slightly repetitive journal, is a valuable addition to the Diary of Abraham Ulrikab. Both illustrate the Europeans' exploitation attitude for commercial purposes and the curiosity of the Inuit who want to see the wonders of a country they cannot imagine." (Translation of the original text in French) - Dr. Denis Saint-Onge, O.C., Emeritus Professor, Department of Geography, University of Ottawa, ON "WOW! What a great book. I read it in one go. It is really exciting and gives a wonderful view of the times." - Marianne Stenbaek, professor of Cultural Studies, English Department, McGill University, Montréal, QC "I loved it very much!!! Like Johan Adrian started his journey, I slowly began my reading then I really got into it, carefully following the events. I was moved and saddened by the death of the 'Eskimos.' This diary is like a thriller we know the ending to, but we seek to understand the circumstances that led to their death." (Translation of the original text in French) - Sylvie Pinsonneault, Montréal, QC "I devoured your book in two evenings! Such an impressive testimony and most poignant for the descendants!" (Translation of the original text in French) - Colette Monchablon, Épernay, France
