Uncommon Courage consists of 11 stories of tragedy or close calls at sea in Newfoundland and Labrador with one story about a bizarre marine incident in Nova Scotia. One story was written by the late sealing captain, Captain Morrissey Johnson. Morrissey outlines details surrounding his young brother’s death on the Johnson family schooner that was cut down by another vessel just outside the St. John’s Narrows. This book is one great read. You won’t be disappointed!
