Newfoundland in fiction

Newfoundland is oft represented in the media, for good or for bad. Sometimes it is referred to as an extremely remote place, other times as the place through which many English-speaking settlers passed before heading on to points within the American heartland, having the closest port of call to the British Isles.

Labrador has been a recognized part of the colony, country or province of Newfoundland for hundreds of years, with or without the official change in the name of the province, hence its inclusion here.
