Many people on Canada’s east coast, the maritime regions, have experienced the temperament of the North Atlantic Ocean: beautiful, moody, mysterious. The cold Atlantic has a capacity, with its tremendous force and power, to take human life seemingly at will; however, it has also spared lives and allowed miraculous escapes. Since the phenomenon of the 1997 hit movie Titanic, more people than ever have been captivated with Titanic trivia and still thirst, seemingly at an ever-increasing rate, for facts about the great ship operated by the renowned White Star Line. Cape Race: Stories from the Coast that Sank the Titanic presents 48 stories of tragedy and heroic rescue from the sea surrounding Cape Race, Newfoundland, including the story of the magnificent liner whose sinking off that coast in 1912 was felt around the world.

Robert Parsons specializes in marine non-fiction, with more than 200 articles and stories published, along with about twenty books. He knows his stuff and this book is testimony to that.-- Atlantic Books Today --
[Cape Race] is an entertaining and clear recounting of the sad, amusing, and frightening history of ship wrecks occurring off Cape Race, Newfoundland. Parsons\' storytelling of the perils is accessible to any interested readers.-- The Northern Mariner --
