Born Down By the Water is Robert Parsons’s latest collection of sea stories inspired by the maritime history of Newfoundland and Labrador. Included are eighteen true stories describing the fate of crafts, from massive ocean liners such as the Titanic to the small schooners that sailed the Newfoundland-Mediterranean-Caribbean routes transporting passengers, codfish, salt, wine, and rum. From wrecks and rescues, races across the Atlantic, and war at sea to murder and riot, the tidal wave of 1929, and tragedies of fire, this compilation is an interesting and exciting read. Supporting these stories are dozens of photographs and newspaper clippings.

From wrecks and rescues to races across the Atlantic, this compilation of 19 true stories, including dozens of photographs and newspaper clippings, is an interesting read.-- Luminus --

Turning pages since 1994

Flanker Press is a bright spark in the Newfoundland and Labrador publishing scene. As the province’s most active publisher of trade books, the company now averages twenty new titles per year, with a heavy emphasis on regional non-fiction and historical fiction.

The mission of Flanker Press is to provide a quality publishing service to the local and regional writing community and to actively promote its authors and their books in Canada and abroad.

Now located in Paradise, Flanker Press has grown from a part-time venture in 1994 to a business with eight full-time employees. In the fall of 2004, Flanker Press launched a new imprint, Pennywell Books. This imprint includes literary fiction, short stories, young adult fiction, and children’s books.
