Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Anne Renaud has given a comprehensive, accessible account of this great ship and the significance of the role it played in transporting people and mail between England and Canada. The book would be an asset to students of Canadian 20th century history as well as a great book for browsing by any who are interested in Canadian history or major shipwrecks which have taken place in our country.

Not to be missed.

This is an interesting story from Canadas past, skillfully told in a style and format that young readers will find easily accessible and that will broaden their understanding of a critical time in Canadas history.

The many photographs and historical documents, such as advertisements and newspaper headlines, included in the book help the reader visualize the period, so that by the time the sinking is described, its tragedy seems all the more profound.
