    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.

    Must read

    On 9/11 terrorists destroyed part of America, but what they didn't count on was the fact that something beautiful came out of their acts. This book shows the spirit of our people, the strength of humans and our ability to unite, and overcome anything. Thanks for telling this truly amazing story.
