HUSTAK, Alan. Titanic: The Canadian Story. Foreword by John P. Eaton. (Montreal): Véhicule Press, (1998). First Printing. Pp (8),9-172,(4) + 1 foldingdiagram (at p.96). 8vo, illustrated blue and grey card covers, cream title block to spine, french flaps. Accounts of the fates met by Canadian passen gers on the doomed liner, along with a description of Halifax's role in theaftermath of the wreck. "Hustak's chronicles are more poignant than fictio n, such as the tale of Quigg Baxter, the young Montreal hockey plater who risked all to smuggle his Belgian fiancee aboard; the Fortune family from Winnipeg which failed to heed a clairvoyant's warning; and Harry Markland Molson, the richest Canadian aboard who was persuaded by Toronto millionaire Arthur Peuchen to extend his stay in England and sail home with hom on the Titanic. Hustak discloses the scandalous behaviour of second class passsenger Joseph Fynney and tells of the young honeymooners Bert and Vera Dick of Calgary who started an enduring legend about the disaster. Some books insistthe Titanic's last victim, found in a lifeboat a month after the disaster, was from New Jersey; others say he was from Chicago. In fact he was Thomso n Beattie of Winnipeg." - from the rear cover and front flap. Very good. 17.00
