Description

A collection of entertaining real life stories of how it was, growing up in the isolated Newfoundland outport of Fogo in the 1950's & 60's. Fogo Island was discovered in 1499 by the Portugese and named Feugo, (fire) after their own Fogo Island in the Cape Verdes off the Coast of Africa. This book also provides background information on Brimstone Head the mysterious geographical dome of ancient volcanic origin seen on the cover. It looms over the Town of Fogo and (according to the Flat Earth Society) is one of the "Four Corners of the Earth." For background to this unique place, there is a section of historical facts about the places on the Island. In addition, there is a Glossary of the unique Newfoundland English used in this book's colourful narration. The famous artist, Robert M. Henry, created the cover and the numerous illustrations throughout the book. --- For further information about this book, ALL the REVIEWS and the community of FOGO, visit http://brimstonehead.com --- E-book available
