The Roar of the Sea
Captain William A. Crowell & Frank Crowell Leaman

The Roar of the Sea - Captain William A. Crowell & Frank Crowell Leaman

Price: CDN$19.95
Book Description
During the Great Depression a Nova Scotia sailor undertook a daring solo voyage On July 16, 1936 Captain William A. Crowell slipped out of Halifax harbour in a 23-foot sailboat built by hand in his backyard. With only his dog, Togo, as a companion, Crowell headed for Vancouver, British Columbia, via the Panama Canal. For the next 14 months, Crowell’s seafaring skills were tested as he navigated dangerous coastlines, endured life-threatening storms, improvised repairs, and connected with hundreds of local people along the way. He also recorded his activities in a weather-beaten logbook. The Roar of the Sea is the story of Crowell’s early days as an adventure seeking sailor, culminating in his record-setting solo voyage. Recollections by his beloved grandson, Frank Leaman, offer insight into Crowell’s life, the days of sail, and the importance of preserving Nova Scotia’s dramatic seafaring history
