During his time in power, Premier Joseph Smallwood ruled Newfoundland and Labrador like an emperor. Using the weapons of political intimidation, Smallwood s influence went largely unchecked until the mid-1960s when The Evening Telegram newspaper unleashed a fearless journalist, Ray Guy. Guy's brilliant commentary, bravery, and satire found a wide audience. His attacks on political ineptitude, combined with a defence of rural life, proved irresistible to a readership thirsty for honesty and journalistic integrity. This collection of Guy's writings includes 167 columns and articles written between 1963 and 1970. Wickedly funny, poignant and humane, this volume offers a glimpse of the history and culture of Newfoundland and Labrador from Guy's unique perspective. Lieutenant Governor John C. Crosbie offers an insightful introduction to this volume.
