Promo Video of The True Story of the 1899 Shipwreck of the Scotsman


 I am proud to release a promotional video for my book The True Story of the 1899 Shipwreck of the Scotsman. It is available on my youtube channel.

The “Scotsman” ocean liner slammed into Belle Isle off the northern coast of Newfoundland, September 22nd, 1899 leaving 14 dead. This tragic event turned even more devastating as firemen on the crew, hired on as “scabs” in England, began a drunken rampage and robbed passengers of their belongings.

Stranded in the harsh climate of Belle Isle, men, women and children fought to survive. This harrowing tale is classic in Canadian maritime history.

Included are interviews with shipwreck survivors, newspaper accounts, rare photos and the official report related to the event. It is available at Wordworth Books if in Waterloo Region, from the author's house or worldwide on Amazon.
