Readers are in for a rare treat with this memoir of Beaton Tulk, the seventh premier of Newfoundland and Labrador. From teacher to businessman to politician, the gentleman from Bonavista Bay has led a colourful and fascinating life. His story begins in pre-Confederation Ladle Cove, where his parents taught him the value of working hard and taking care of family first. From there we follow Beaton to his Memorial University days and the teaching job that waited for him back home. After spending a number of years shaping the minds of young Newfoundlanders, he became a supervising principal for the Carmanville school system. In 1979, he was elected to the House of Assembly as the member for Fogo, and thus began his lifelong pursuit, through politics, to bring about change for the better for all in the province—in particular for those living in the outports. A Man of My Word is a bare-all autobiography full of charm, humour, and personal tragedy. It is co-written by Laurie Blackwood Pike, the bestselling author of Grandpa Pike's Outhouse Reader.

This memoir is a great reflection of the man who created it – entertaining, honest, and larger than life. It reveals how Beaton’s tremendous sense of humor, his passion for his province, and his loyalty helped him deal with diverse challenges, famous figures, and unique circumstances. Through each memory, and with each person, challenge, and circumstance, you see how he earned the right to call himself ‘A Man of My Word -- The Honourable Dwight Ball, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador --
