Book Description
Wind and Wave: Sea Tales from Around our Coast is a new book by Robert Parsons. It contains 52 new and exciting stories of ships, people, towns. But, best of all, the yarns (and each one is true) are of courage and endurance as exemplified by people from all around Newfoundland and Labrador.

Wind and Wave has many images, 270 pages, crew lists, stories and sub-stories. As an added feature (and one which many readers and researchers like to see) this collection of tales is fully indexed by ship, town and Individual Names, listing about 800 personal names - of our ancestors, our hardy sea-faring pioneers, our intrepid seamen who fought the gales and rocks and often won.

The ships of many smaller towns are featured e.g. Green's Harbour, The Rams, Point LaHaye, Mall Bay, Cape Broyle and the larger centers like Carbonear, Grand Bank, St. John's, Port aux Basques. Robert has encircled the province with this book, beginning at the tip of the Burin, then to the many ports of the South Coast, proceeds up along the West Coast, the Labrador, an exciting tale from the tip of the Great Northern, Notre Dame Bay, Trinity, ships from the Straight Shore, Conception and Bonavista Bays, the Avalon, the Southern Shore and finishing with a "tale or two" from Placentia Bay.

Again, as with many of Robert's previous books, many stories have a follow-up of people and family left behind to cope after certain shipping disasters.
