Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Horse Islands is the name of a resettled fishing community on one of the two islands that also bears its name, situated off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Horse Island was the scene of a terrific accident of a Hollywood movie gone awry. Horse Islands located off the tip of the Baie Verte Peninsula, are two islands. Western Island the smaller of the two and Eastern Island about three times the size of the former. They are sometimes referred to as St. Barbe Islands. Western Island does not provide for easy access and never contained any permanent settlement. Its shape is interrupted by long jagged rocks that jut out into the ocean on the north side of the island called Nervous Rocks. The Eastern Island contains the only suitable harbour were fisherman could make landfall and was first settled by the Bath family in 1836. Both islands were densely wooded and provided adequate supply of firewood for its residents.
