Shipwrecks Off the East Coast Book Description:

Shipwrecks Off the East Coast tells the stories of nine ill-fated vessels as they navigated the often treacherous waters of the Atlantic region. Among them: the wreck of the SS Atlantic, only miles from safety in Halifax, where 562 people perished, including all women and children aboard but one solitary boy; the dramatic sinking of the SS Caribou, destroyed by a German U-boat's torpedo off the coast of Newfoundland, with 135 lives lost; the famous sinking of the sailing vessel Marco Polo just ninety metres offshore of PEI; and the Royal Tar, whose passengers included a full complement of circus animals and performers, which was engulfed by fire and abandoned by her chief crew members.
