Reader's Diary #18- Leslie Bella: Newfoundlanders Home and Away (up to p.116)


If you've ever taken a sociology course there's a very good chance that you have read House of Lim: A Study of a Chinese Familyby Margery Wolf or Nisa: Kung Woman by Marjorie Shostak. Unless things have changed drastically in the decade (sigh!) since I last took a soc. course, these books were pretty much ubiquitous. I'm not under such delusions that Newfoundlanders: Home and Away will ever become as mainstream as these classics (nor should it), but I do wonder if any non-Newfoundlanders out there would find this interesting. Any non-Newfoundlanders out there want to field this one? (crickets chirp softly as a tumbleweed blows by...)
