Description or summary of the book: The second title in the new Stories of Our Past series, Bluenose tells the story behind the ship on Canada's ten-cent coin. Beginning with the schooner's launch in 1921, author Monica Graham describes Bluenose's career as a fishing boat, her racing exploits (seventeen years undefeated in the International Fisherman's Trophy), her representation of Canada at the Chicago World's Fair in 1933, and her time as a shipping vessel in the Caribbean rum and sugar trade. Using a colorful design, and with photos, maps, diagrams, interviews with crew members, and sidebar features on sailing and shipboard life, Bluenose offers a fascinating introduction to a Canadian emblem to satisfy a variety of interests.
