Sunday on the Frozen Barrens
The Barrens of Newfoundland occupy the interior on the summits of hills and ridges, and are elevated and exposed tracts. They are covered with a scrubby vegetation, berry bearing plants and dwarf bushes of various kinds. These barrens are the home of the Caribou, Ptarmigan and Snowshoe Hare and Moose are commonly seen traversing this lonely back country.
