Lifeline is an all-new edition of Harry Bruce's classic telling of the roots of today's Marine Atlantic—a history of the courage and determination that maintain the water-links of Atlantic Canada. From Newfoundland to Cape Breton, along the coast of Labrador—from Nova Scotia to Maine and New Brunswick, and across to PEI—through wind and ice, Harry Bruce brings to life a bold, brave, sometimes hilarious and often tragic history. With 40 historic photographs.About the Author: Born and raised in Toronto, Harry Bruce has deep family and literary roots in Nova Scotia.
