9780385125703: A Winter's Tale: The Wreck of the 'Florizel'

Before becoming Newfoundland's famous author of sea tragedies, Cassie Brown wrote hundreds of shortstories as a professional journalist.

Twelve stories are presented here: Tales of shipwrecks, captains, sealers and sailors, and heroic women, all described by one of Newfoundland's most respected authors.

Headlining this collection is an account of the sinking of the S.S. Caribou, torpedoed by German submarine U-69 in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, killing 137 men, women and children, including Caption Ben Tavenor and his two sons.

Also included is Cassie Brown's short story "DeathMarch," which she later developed into the best-selling book Death on the Ice. Another tale briefly describes the tragic S.S. Florizel disaster on Newfoundland's Southern Shore.
