About this title

Synopsis:

This is the story of the most famous iceberg of all time: the one iceberg that has gripped the imagination of the world, that has humbled arrogant faith in technology, that speaks of the wonders and dangers of the North Atlantic Ocean. This is the iceberg that sank the Titanic.


First published in 1983, Richard Brown's brilliant account tells the story of the iceberg through the experiences of the Inuit bands, sailors, and explorers who saw it before its fateful meeting with destiny. In it, Titanic takes her place among the ships and seals, the whales and bears, seabirds and people who all feel the effects of the iceberg's passing. Its moment in history proves the culmination of a long and influential passage.


A classic of natural history writing, Voyage of the Iceberg has been warmly received in Canada, as well as in French, Dutch, American, and British editions.

About the Author:

DR. RICHARD BROWN was one of Canada’s foremost experts on seagoing birds and worked for many years as a marine biologist with the Canadian Wildlife Service in Halifax.
