Branch, Mary Lydia (Bolles)   
Published:   1910
Tags:Canada, Canadiana, Newfoundland, non-fiction, travel

"We glided into a harbor which wound like a river between jagged precipices, and then the Bruce reached her wharf [...] a twenty minutes' walk along a rugged path, much of it the exposed surface of solid rock, brought us to Channel, a typical fishing village, like which there are scores along the deeply indented coast of Newfoundland" (p. 5). Branch tells of her visit to Channel, now part of Port aux Basques, and of the people she met there. [Suggest a different description.]
