Book Description
Tickle Cove, a small community in Bonavista Bay South, Newfoundland, has a story to tell, one of survival and unforeseen strengths necessary to keep one step ahead of the inconsistencies of a tormented sea. In this community filled with interesting characters great and small, life was lived to the fullest with little taken for granted.

Tickle Cove continues to fight for its existence. Those who have studied, read, listened to, and yearned for the calm of the disappearing Newfoundland outport will find inner peace through the thoughts and memories of the elders of this community. This is a story told from the heart and treated with the delicate hands of eternal appreciation.

Captain John Russell is idolized in Tickle Cove and is in constant demand by writers and researchers soliciting glimpses into the past. Born in 1906 next door in Red Cliff, he always considered Tickle Cove his home. Captain Russellís story is one of adventure in the days when endurance was expected and loyalty was given to those who deserved it.
