Sinopsis: Before becoming Newfoundland's famous author of sea tragedies, Cassie Brown wrote hundreds of shortstories as a professional journalist.
Twelve stories are presented here: Tales of shipwrecks, captains, sealers and sailors, and heroic women, all described by one of Newfoundland's most respected authors.
Headlining this collection is an account of the sinking of the S.S. Caribou, torpedoed by German submarine U-69 in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, killing 137 men, women and children, including Caption Ben Tavenor and his two sons.
Also included is Cassie Brown's short story "DeathMarch," which she later developed into the best-selling book Death on the Ice. Another tale briefly describes the tragic S.S. Florizel disaster on Newfoundland's Southern Shore.
From the Publisher: Bounding through the furious seas, the S.S. Florizel becomes ship-wrecked, killing ninety-four of its crew and passengers.

"Just before dawn, over nine hours after leaving port, Captain Martin ran his ship full steam onto the rocks just north of Cape Race. But that was only the beginning of a long & gruelling drama. As the ship slowly disintegrated, the passengers and crew desperately tried to save themselves. Men, women and children were washed overboard, or killed from exposure, or fatally trapped below deck. From the shore helpless fishermen watched in horror. Twenty-seven hours after striking the reef the daring rescue took place. Of the 138 on board, seventeen passengers & twenty-seven crew members survived. In "A Winter's Tale" Cassie Brown retells in chilling detail the story of the wreck, the rescue & the enquiry that followed. And she proposes, for the first time, the real reason for this senseless disaster." Any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a stock photo. Nº de ref. de la librería 006769
