Earl Pilgrim has been a soldier with the PPCLI, a game warden and conservationist, and local storyteller. In this book he examines the life and work of Sir Wilfred Grenfell through one episode in his career-his efforts to save a crippled teenage boy, Charley Hancock. "This book sees Sir Wilfred Grenfell through the eyes of the local people. It depicts Grenfell the way he was seen and the esteem in which he was held. He was respected for his scientific and medical knowledge and ability-almost seen as a superhuman, and yet he was also seen by the people as a frail human who could not really cope with the elements of a northern culture as well as the local people."-Chris Decker, Minister of Health, Govt of Newfoundland and Labrador. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall.
