Connecting the Continents

19.95

The completion of the Atlantic cable in 1866 made headlines around the world and established the fishing village of Heart's Content, Newfoundland as a hub of international communication for nearly a century. Connecting the Continents tells the story of the struggles and successes of a pioneer cable station whose elite group of operators added a new social class to the community. In the process, they reshaped life in Heart's Content, giving it a flavour unique among the outports of the province.
