  • No price tags on the doors of Newfoundland

    I enjoyed how Defede took time to give some background information on Newfoundland as a province and the importance of Gander International Airport in aviation. The famous Newfoundland hospitality really speaks for itself. This book describes how Newfoundlanders donated everything from towels and bedding to clothing and even the use of their own bathrooms, to make sure their unexpected visitors had everything they needed. As an old song goes: "There are No Price Tags on the Doors of Newfoundland" This topic is important in that it shows a strong friendship between our (Canadian and American) two countries. When one country is in crisis, another stepped up to offer aid. I would recommend this book to those who are interested in Canadian-American relations and those who enjoy reading nonfiction.

  • The Day the world Came to Town

    Great read I couldn't put this book down till I knew everyone was ok. This is nothing less than I would expect from my fellow Newfoundlanders. So proud to be a Newfie!!! Can't wait to see the musical CFA in Vancouver wth all this background that I learned from this great book!

  • Excellent Read

    After seeing COME FROM AWAY, a musical about the people of Newfoundland and how they helped the people that were on airplanes September 11, 2001, I wanted to know more about the people and events on this day. This book should be a MUST READ for everyone, but particularly students in high school, to ensure we always are on guard against terrorism and remember the hope and love of the Newfoundland people.

    Thanks for your feedback!
