While the splendid wooden-hulled sailing vessels that once distinguished many harbours and coves along the Atlantic coast have now virtually disappeared, the pioneering work of marine artist, J. Franklin Wright, re-defines that seafaring era, capturing the spirit of an age in maritime achievement, which is one of the most inspiring in Canadian history.
The marine paintings presented in this volume make a vital contribution to our understanding of an important era in nautical history that stretches from the early settlement of Canada to the defence of a nation in two World Wars.
