Newfoundland and Labrador is breathtakingly beautiful and a challenging place to live. It was Britain's oldest colony and is Canada's newest province. It's been a meeting place for - an is home to - Indigenous Peoples, explorers, settlers, come-from-aways.

What has this place of promise and disasters - and endless wellsprings of hope and loyalty - inspired in its artists? Eighteen writers and more than 180 colour images now answer that question in this first comprehensive art history of Newfoundland and Labrador.

From different vantage points, looking back and looking ahead, they examine the ways that the stories we tell, as individuals and as a collective, define and redefine our understanding of place, both its past and its future.
