Like many passengers aboard our East Coast trips, Michael has been fascinated by the village of Francois (pronounced Fransway) on Newfoundland’s south coast, as well as other remote communities we visit.
Francois—whose population nearly triples when our ship pays a call— is one of a dwindling number of outports across the province.
Michael’s new book, Sweetland, is set in a fictional outport on the verge of resettlement.
Michael recently penned an article for the Globe and Mail, What it means to be a Newfoundlander is rapidly changing.
Michael’s insights about the changing ways of life in Newfoundland and Labrador are a boon to our East Coast expeditions, and Sweetland promises to be a fascinating read.
Well done, Michael Crummey!
Michael Crummey will join our Newfoundland Circumnavigation, June 24 to July 4 2015.
