About the author (1999)

Lynne Fitzhugh first visited Labrador in 1969 when her archaeologist husband Bill was finishing his dissertation research and their son Ben was two. In 1971 she began spending the summers on the north Labrador coast as a cook and occasional surveyor for Bill's expedition camps. She has since been returning to Labrador on a regular basis.
