Salt Water Tales: The Strange and Tragic Volume II by Robert Parsons takes up where the popular Volume I left off. Forty unusual sea stores, many edging into the bizarre, come from the harbours, coves and bays all over Newfoundland and Labrador: Bonavista, Trepassey, Petty Harbour, Renews and the Southern Shore, Twillingate, St. Shotts, Lumsden and the Straight Shore, Catalina, St. John's, Grand Bank, Burin, Harbour Grace, Carbonear, the West Coast and many, many more. Well- illustrated with sketches (by the well-known Downhomer artist Mel D'Souza), maps, crew lists, diagrams, clippings and photos, this latest volume is a must for those interested in family history, island stories, marine adventure and misadventure. Stories range from one page to three pages in length.
