    Originally published in 1973 and now a Nimbus Classic, Woman of Labrador is Elizabeth Goudie’s enduring and candid story of her pioneering life as a trapper’s wife in the early 1900s. She was left alone much of the year to rear eight children while her husband worked the traplines, providing furs for their meager income. Independent and resourceful, Elizabeth fulfilled multiple roles as homemaker , doctor, cook, hunter, shoemaker, and seamstress for her growing family, who provided companionship during long winters of isolation and her husband’s absence.
