The Come from Away / Stitching Simon Strugnell / Eighth Day / Sounding / The Men Who Dug

Lois Leveen

Abstract


These poems are part of a larger cycle of poems about Celeste Gerber Ackerman, an American who traveled to Labrador in the 1940s as part of the Grenfell Nursing Mission and remained in Labrador for the rest of her life, and of her husband Gordon Ackerman. Some of the poems are specifically about medical topics and the nursing mission, while others speak more broadly of life (and death) in Labrador.
