Book Description
Herb Spratt of St. John's was a gunner aboard HMS Rodney, a British warship that played a leading role in the WW2 sinking of the German battleship Bismarck. Josephine O'Brien of Cape Broyle met Herb when she came to St. John's. That was a beginning that ultimately led to tragedy. Another great read from Earl Pilgrim, this province's favourite story teller.

About the Author
Earl B. Pilgrim, who is undoubtedly Newfoundland and Labrador's favourite storyteller, was born in St. Anthony in 1939. He received his early education in Roddickton, later studying Forestry at the College of Trades and Technology in St. Johnís.

He began his adult career in 1960 as an Infantryman in the Canadian Army, serving with the Princess Patriciaís Canadian Light Infantry. While there, he became involved in the sport of boxing, eventually becoming the Canadian Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion.

Following a stint in the Forces, he took a job as a Forest Ranger with the Newfoundland and Labrador Forestry Department. During this time, he came to recognize the plight of the big game population on Newfoundlandís Great Northern Peninsula. After nine years as a forest warden, he became a wildlife protection officer with the Newfoundland Wildlife Service.
