Book Description
ďThatís a dangerous coastline, too . . . around Catalina . . . we donít want to venture too close to the shore in this wind.Ē

On the night of December 6, 1926, during a blinding snowstorm, a schooner out of Port Nelson, Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland, ran into the rugged cliffs just north of Little Catalina. Of the nine crew members, seven men and one woman perished, while one man, the captainís son, astonishingly survived. This is the amazing true story of the Ella M. Rudolph and her crew.

About the Author
Bruce Stagg is known in Newfoundland and Labrador as an educator, entertainer, storyteller, playwright, and director. He has published one book of plays and written numerous others. Also, he has published three books of short stories and a childrenís book. He has won several awards for his work and his writing has been studied in Newfoundland and Labrador schools. The Blackwood Schooner is his first book of creative non-fiction and, having taken three years to research and write, is perhaps his most comprehensive literary work to date.

Bruce was born in Catalina and can remember when the Labrador fishery was thriving, thus his passion for this story. He and his wife, Dale, currently live in Hillview, Trinity Bay.
