WAM July 23-24 Greta Hussey
Newfoundlanders have always made do with what they got. And when they got nothing, they go somewhere where there is something.
Greta Hussey lived a life like that in the dirty thirties, growing up helping the family stay alive.
All these many years later, soon-to-be ninety year old Greta set her remembrances down in book form and now Flanker Press is presenting them to you. Our Life on Lear’s Room Labrador tells stories of a style of life now long lost.
I spoke with Greta by phone this week and asked her when she first went down the Labrador.
