Synopsis: In 1934, North America lay stripped of its riches by a great depression. When the land refused to yield its bounty and the sea grew stingy, everyone in the Western World found it harder to survive, especially those in the isolated outports of Newfoundland. The Last Farewell tells the true story of a crew of logger-sailors who left their home port of Hare Bay aboard a two-masted schooner in early June of that year. Along her route to St. John's, the crew of the Ethel Collett tell each other stories of life and death on the sea. They relive some of Newfoundland's richest historical moments, from shipwrecks and sealing disasters to political strife and financial ruin. But little do they know that they are heading toward one of the most astonishing tales of them all: their own.

About the Author: Born in a small, two-storey house in Hare Bay, Bonavista Bay, Gary Collins finished school at Brown Memorial High School in the same town. He spent forty years in the tree harvesting/sawmilling business along with his father, Theophilus, and son Clint. His writing career began when he was asked to write eulogies for deceased friends and family. Currently he is a freelance writer who contributes feature articles to the Newfoundland Herald under the pseudonym Nicholas C. In his spare time he likes to play the guitar.
