Challengers of the Sea brings you face to face with men and women who take on the best and the worst of what the Northwest Atlantic Ocean offers. Read gripping accounts of losing sons, husbands, fathers, brothers, and best friends to the ravages of unforgiving seas.

Meet others whose lives have been touched by the sea in a variety of ways. Learn about a woman who pilots a Beechcraft airplane, looking for everything from icebergs and whales to those who contravene Canadian laws affecting waters off the east coast of Canada. And meet an artist who uses her craft to send a message of the need to conserve ocean life.

You will also meet two men who work hard in different ways to make the fishing industry in Atlantic Canada safer. And learn about coping. When the bodies of loved ones lost at sea are never recovered, there is no closure for those left to grieve in silence after the rest of the world moves on. Theirs is a special kind of heartbreak.
