"Rough food is your staples, your Winter's diet. The things you got in the Fall to see you through 'til Spring. "

Rough Food details how and why northern Newfoundlanders have lived off the land, as unyielding as it is, for a significant proportion of their food, shelter and fuel. Omohundro documents the self-sufficient dimension of rural life and examines recent changes, looking towards future developments.


"This ethnography is a detailed study of selected communities on the 300-kilometre-long Great Northern Peninsula. "
