ABOUT THE BOOK

This book is a biography of two British Columbian ships that performed legendary service in the Canadian Arctic. The St. Roch, now on permanent display at the Vancouver Maritime Museum, is the better known of the two, although North Star of Herschel Island is still sailing and still adding to her legend. Historian Bruce Macdonald—who, along with his wife, owns North Star of Herschel Island—has meticulously researched the origins and service logs of each ship and created a book that will enthrall old Arctic hands, maritime history buffs and anyone who appreciates well-written Canadian history.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Bruce Macdonald is a writer, sailor and artist with a passion for Canadian history. He has logged over 100,000 nautical miles and, for many years, has lived along the BC Coast aboard North Star of Herschel Island with his wife and children.
