On the night of November 29, 1929, eleven schooners set sail for home from the comfort and safety of St. John's harbour. They all headed north: directly into the teeth of a deadly hurricane. Here for the first time are the stories of the eleven schooners that were caught in the gale of 1929. Newfoundland's favourite storyteller, Gary Collins, takes us aboard each one in turn to witness the terrifying ferocity of a storm at sea through the eyes of the schoonermen who battled it. These interconnected tales of high-seas adventure illustrate the bravery and ingenuity of a lost breed of sailors, whose quick thinking often meant life or death for the whole crew. Turn the page and set sail for an exciting journey that will leave you breathless!
