"In 2004, Canadian Tomas Evensen perished in the North Atlantic in thearms of his nephew after a failed attempt to sail to Norway. It was a trag ic death and one that left many unanswered questions: Why wasn't he wearingthe survival suit that could have saved his life? And why would an inexper ienced sailor undertake such a dangerous voyage? In this deeply compelling story, journalist John Chipman retraces Thomas's voyage from its beginnings- his boyhood dream of learning to sail with his father and his midlife de cision to fulfill that dream with his own son; culminating in the purchase of a sailboat ill-equipped for the journey. And then there is the voyage itself, a heart-stopping and ultimately doomed endeavour. Skillfully interweaving conversations with those whose lives were touched by Thomas, as well as his nephew's first-hand account of the boat's final days, John Chipman tells a story that is both harrowing and heart-breaking." -from the dj.

Goose Lane Editions, Fredericton, NB, 2002, ISBN:0864923600 2002 
CHOYCE, Lesley. The Coasts of Canada : A History. (Fredericton, New Brunswick) : Goose Lane Editions, (2002). First Printing. Pp. (10),11-308,(4). With many illustrations in the text. 8vo (162 x 235 mm), blue cloth, silver lettering to front & spine.

Lesley Willis Choyce (b. March 21, 1951, Riverside Township, New Jersey), novelist, poet, educator and publisher.

The lives of those who live on the east and west coasts of Canada are invariably intertwined with the sea. This is the story of the civilizations that sprung up on the coasts of Canada, and the men and women who worked (and still do) on the sea.

"As benevolent as it is brutal, the sea has controlled Canada’s history and shaped our collective identity. The Coasts of Canada tells the stories of our east, west, and north coastlines, from the earliest human habitation until today. A coast-dweller himself, Lesley Choyce is fascinated by the legendary men of the sea, but his sympathy lies with the men and women whose everyday lives are governed by the country’s oceans.

Brimming with heroes and villains, shipwrecks and rescues, roguery and virtue, and stories of overcoming unimaginable odds, The Coasts of Canada is idiosyncratic, eclectic, and iconoclastic. It’s a book of discoveries, a record of misdeeds and misjudgements, and a pleas to preserve the good things of the sea, the shore, and the coastal communities." - from the dustjacket.
