The story of the original Bluenose has permeated maritime lore, but the truth is more riveting than any fictionalized account. This is the true story of Bluenose, launched in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, in 1921 and lost at Haiti in 1946. Filled with never-before-published tales of crew members and photographs, Bluenose: The Ocean Knows Her Name ranks as the most accurate and entertaining account of the Queen of the North Atlantic.
