  • Overview

    Nunatsuak, an Inuit word meaning the big land, speaks of a man's love for nature, his province and its people. Here, Cyril Goodyear, a former Newfoundland Ranger, RCMP officer, Provincial Court Judge, and avid sportsman, recalls the challenges and rewards of northern living with stories of outdoor travel, adventure, hunting and fishing in Newfoundland and Labrador's vast wildness. His appreciation of the land and his deep respect for those who live in harmony with it, shines through even in the most difficult moments - driving a team of dogs hundreds of miles to Goose Bay, being stranded in a raging blizzard, facing near starvation in the ruggedness of Newfoundland's interior, and enduring the loneliness and isolation of being stationed in Northern Labrador.

  • About the Author

    Cyril Goodyear

    Cyril Goodyear is a man who loves the out-of-doors. Summer or winter, his favourite pastime is to set up camp almost anywhere in Newfoundland and Labrador's wilderness. Having served as a Newfoundland Ranger (later transferred to the RCMP), his initial exposure to nature came as an unwritten part of his job description.

    In later years, as Provincial Court Judge, Chief Jude of the Provincial Court, Associate Deputy Minister Department of Rural, Agricultural, and Northern Development, Cyril always found time to get away from these high-pressure positions and return to nature.
