Review

Teri-Lynn Janveau and Allister Thompson in Sailing for Glory have put together the story of Captain Angus Walters and the Bluenose. Written as short chapters, this book is an interesting account of a period of history that soon may be forgotten. The authors piece together the life story of Angus Walters and at the same tine capture a glimpse of what life was like for all those living in these times. The combination of photographs and illustrations that jump off the page enable the reader to view the time.

 

Highly recommended for all. This is a definite read for any and all who would like to know a little more about the life and times during this period.
