Lost At Sea Lost At Sea
Robert C. Parsons

Price: CDN$19.95

(Currently unavailable for Purchase)
Book Description
If you have Lost at Sea, Vol. One and Lost at Sea, Vol. Two, you already have this book. Since 1991 and 1992 respectively, these books have each been reprinted several times, and their popularity is undiminished. Now, some ten years after their first printing, it has been decided to re-issue these books as one compiled volume. Lost at Sea: A Compilation contains all the text and photographs of the two original volumes plus minor corrections and updates of information that was not available at the time of the initial printing. If this is your first exposure to Lost at Sea, we're sure you will enjoy these stories of tragedy, human endurance and the dangers faced by the schoonermen and others who depended on the waters off Newfoundland's South Coast for their livelihood.

About the Author
Robert Parsons is the author of eight books and a large number of newspaper and magazine articles, relating to the dangers faced by those who make their living from the sea. Several years ago, when Parsons rediscovered his interest in the history and heritage of the banks fishery, there were only a few still alive who had first-hand experience in dory fishing from schooners on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. Their number is now further diminished. However Parsons has continued his research, through oral history supported by archival materials, and his books enjoy a wide readership.

Since retiring from the teaching profession, Robert Parsons has devoted much of his time to sharing Newfoundland's seafaring history through both the written and the spoken word.
