In the 450 years since Jacques Cartier's arrival, Prince Edward Island's history has been tied to the sea. From the first explorers to immigrants, traders, sailors, and fishermen, thousands of seafaring people and their ships have come and gone--many lost to the relentless ocean. Their stories, though, survive in legends and folklore, in archives and family histories.

From PEI author Julie V. Watson comes the telling of these legends in this new edition of Shipwrecks and Seafaring Tales of Prince Edward Island.

Now with a new cover.
