Book Description
A collection of tales of human endurance and tragedy have been gathered from archival research, as well as from first hand accounts from some of the remaining schoonermen in the Grand Bank area.

About the Author
Robert Parsons was born in Grand Bank, Newfoundland, and grew up in that community just at the time the wooden boats were disappearing from the South Coast ports. He was told sea tales by his father, who spent a life-time sailing on the great banking schooners.

Robert studied clerk accounting before attending Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's and, after holding a number of teaching positions in various parts of Newfoundland, eventually returned to teach in his home town of Grand Bank, where he and his wife are also kept busy raising their three children.

Several years ago Parsons rediscovered his interest in the history and heritage of the bank fishery. Archival research and talks with schoonermen led to amazing tales of human endurance and tragedy; stories which if unrecorded, might be lost forever. As a result, Parson's personal journey as a writer had begun.
