Strongly influenced by the arts and crafts movement, the New England artist Jessie Luther was recruited by Wilfred Grenfell to teach weaving to the women at St. Anthony, whose hooked mats went on to become famous for their strong designs and meticulous craftsmanship. An annotated edition of a travel journal that Luther wrote from 1906 to 1910, Jessie Luther at the Grenfell Mission describes the local customs of St. Anthony and also provides an unusually intimate account of Wilfried Grenfell - his idiosyncrasies, his attempts to meet the needs of the community, his rescue from a floating ice pan, his marriage - and brings to life the Newfoundlanders with whom he worked.Canadian Guild of Crafts Quebec, Montreal, Quebec Census of Newfoundland and Labrador, 1921.
