Newfoundland




Vanished in the Mist: Part II: Life in the Undertow 1825 - 1929 - DVD

By the 1800s, settlers were putting down roots on the island. People in remote outports developed their own dialects, songs and folklore. But fishing families endured decades of hardship, up against powerful merchants and a sea as cruel as it was bountiful.

The most harrowing year by far was 1914. It brought the sealing disasters--the worst in Newfoundland's history--in which over 75 men died out on the ice floes, and 174 others were claimed by the sea. And it brought the devastation of the First World War, in which one quarter of Newfoundland's young men did not return to their island. In 1919, Newfoundland finally achieved the status of Dominion.

In this second episode of the series, Newfoundland experiences the growing pains that allow it to stand free as an island nation.
