About the AuthorJames P. Howley (1847-1918) was a civil servant, explorer, geologist, writer, authority on the Beothuks. He spent summers between 1868 and 1909 in southern, western, and northeastern parts of the island, with crews of residents and Micmacs, in geological examinations, surveying, determining railway routes, and searching for coal deposits. The author hoped his diaries, when put into book form, would "prove of some interest to future explorers and give some idea of what the conditions of travelling in the interior were before the advent of the Railway."
