from the flyleaf of The Treasury of Newfoundland Stories,
published by Maple Leaf Mills Limited, in 1961


This Treasury Of Newfoundland Stories represents a further strengthening of our Company's long association with Newfoundland. It is a collection of stories which has no equivalent in Newfoundland literature, for it has been compiled from tales submitted by Newfoundlanders themselves.

We are proud to be able to publish such a collection and thus help to keep alive the traditional folklore of this storied island. It is heritage that enriches us all.

The tales that make up this Treasury present a vivid cross-section of Newfoundland life since John Cabot arrived at Bonavista to claim the country for Henry VII. Many of the stories are tragic, for Newfoundland's history has not been an easy one, but the Treasury is not without humour. What particularly impresses one is the wide variety of experience these stories record. I am sure Newfoundlanders everywhere will draw deep satisfaction from the courage and strength of purpose that connects these tales, a living thread in the rich canvas of their Island heritage.
