Sable Island

Tales of Tragedy and Survival from the Graveyard of the Atlantic

by Johanna Bertin

Sable Island has indelibly marked all who have come into contact with it - by accident or by choice. Since 1583, 350 ships have wrecked against its shape-shifting shores as if lured into a trap by a whispering siren wind. This exciting collection casts explorers, castaways, pirates, settlers, and the quintessential symbols of survival - the Sable Island horses - in tales of death, destruction, and endurance. Set on the isolated island of fog-shrouded sand dunes, these true accounts are tragic and inspiring.
