DescriptionEdited by his brother Spence, this biography of Caspar Burton Junior contains mainly letters Burton sent to family and friends and gives great insight into the life of a heroic young man who died far too young from injuries suffered in the First World War. The third section of the book (pp. 101-198) describes the three years Burton volunteered with the Grenfell Mission in Northern Newfoundland and Labrador, becoming a favorite of those he worked with at the mission and the many people he met through his work there.
