Wind and Wave tell of the heroism and sacrifice of our Newfoundland and Labrador seafaring ancestors. This collection begins with Fortune on the tip of the Burin Peninsula and continues around the coast clockwise to encompass virtually every shoreline of our province. These sea tales allow us to travel back in time and travel to see in word and imagine how our seafaring predecessors made their way along the vast expanse of the Atlantic that surrounds our province.
In the past eleven years, Robert Parsons has become one of Newfoundland’s most popular and prolific writers, specializing in stories of shipwrecks, rescue and survival in the waters off Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as Canada’s Maritime Provinces. Bob devotes most of his time to researching, writing, and promoting the sea-going history of Canada’s Eastern provinces, and of the ships and the people who sailed them.
