1919. With illustrations. Sir Wilfred Thomason Grenfell, one of Canada's most romantic heroes of the north, relates the story of his adventurous life. He was of an era when Victorian missionaries flung themselves into the far corners of the globe to bring civilization to the real or imagined uncivilized.
Grenfell, motivated by both his religious and medical influences, brought to the coastal communities of Newfoundland, Labrador, and Quebec, a new degree of health care.
