From Our Editors

The sea is responsible for taking the lives of many great men. When fishing was a way of life for many, the American coast and Newfoundland`s rocky shores were home to some of the greatest adventures. Great Stories of the Sea is a collection of the best stories written about the ocean by such literary legends as Stephen Crane, Alistair Macleod and Silver Donald Cameron. These stories are both historical in nature and contemporary, and all bring out the beauty and horror of the sea.
