Book Description
Born Down By the Water is Robert Parsons’ latest collection of sea stories inspired by the maritime history of Newfoundland and Labrador. Included are 19 true stories describing the fate of crafts, from massive ocean liners such as the Titanic to the small schooners that sail the Newfoundland-Mediterranean-Caribbean routes transporting passengers, codfish, salt, wine and rum.

From wrecks and rescues, races across the Atlantic and war at sea to murder and riot, the tidal wave of 1929 and tragedies of fire, this compilation is an interesting and exciting read. Supporting these stories are dozens of photographs and newspaper clippings.

About the Author
Robert Parsons is one of Atlantic Canada’s most popular and prolific writers, specializing in stories of ships and sailors. He was born on the edge of the ocean, the son of a sea cook, and sailed as a boy of eleven on a summer vacation to the then prolific Grand Banks off Newfoundland. Now, in his “laid back” days as a retired educator, Robert continues to research and write.

He has had over 200 articles and stories published in various local and national magazines, ranging from Newfoundland Lifestyle, Downhomer Magazine, Newfoundland Quarterly, Decks Awash, Rounder, Evening Telegram and Southern Gazette, to the national publications Legion Magazine and Reader’s Digest. Robert’s dozen or so books of marine misadventure have been well accepted by readers throughout Newfoundland and Labrador and on the Canadian mainland.
