The Telegram dubs Silk Sails an Essential Book

Silk Sails Cover

Silk Sails puts the lie to that myth [that women did not own or control ships] with an encyclopedic examination of the ships’ registries, listing every woman known to have ever owned, mortgaged or had shares in a ship … Anyone with a background in the fishery, which probably means anyone in Newfoundland, will come across familiar names in Silk Sails, which fortunately has an index to both the women and their ships … Silk Sails goes on the shelf with Story’s Dictionary [of Newfoundland English], Seary’s Family Names [of the Island of Newfoundland] and a few dozen other essential works.”

– Robin McGrath, The Telegram
