Leaving Newfoundland tells the dramatic story of the people of <_st13a_state _w3a_st="on">Newfoundland and <_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Labrador and their bid to survive in a place of uncompromising hardship. The continual conflicts with a bleak environment, unjust laws, and a disinterested colonial master that simply wished them to go away are realistically described herein.
