Titanic

The ill-fated maiden voyage of the great "unsinkable ship," carrying with it the hopes and dreams of humankind in its massive decks and luxurious cabins, may have started in England, but it ended in catastrophe and despair off the coast of Halifax, Canada. A touching reminder of the fallibility of man-made machines, the repercussions of the loss of the Titanic are still felt today. This heart-warming collection of stories tells of the intimate connection that Canada has with one of the most resounding tragedies of the twentieth century.
