Book Description
From Robert Parsons:
"Just Listen to the Sea: Tales of Ships and Sailors" is a first. Nowhere, in Newfoundland and Labrador at least, can one listen to sea stories on CD or tape. It happened this way. Over the course of fourteen years of meeting and listening to those who stopped at my book-selling booth, at readings or promotions, or those who called or wrote, I had often heard people say, "Do you have any sea stories on tape or cassette?" I didn't. But over the years I thought about the project or venture. Orally recording a story was something new and unique to me, a writer of the tales of our sea going pioneers of Newfoundland and Labrador. Finally, in the fall of 2005, I found the time and determination to do it.

It is especially produced for those who are no longer able to read or who don't read, as well for travelers - it's a 90-minute-long recording or "Book on Tape" to listen to on those long drives. In addition, the music between selections and in the background comes from one of Newfoundland's premier accordion players - Sim Savory of renown band Simani.

On this recording are eleven tales; some new, having never been in print before "How the Myra Was Saved" for example. Others are old favorites from around our island e.g. the tragic tale of the "The Queen of Swansea."
