Synopsis:

Suitable for ages 9 years & over, this biography tells the story of the unique bond between Captain Angus Walters and his schooner, the Bluenose. The Bluenose is a Canadian icon, an icon of nautical competition and one of the world's most famous ships. The Bluenose was unbeaten between 1921 and 1939 in the races for the International Fisherman's Cup. Its success galvanised the young nation's national pride, and the ship remains an important symbol in Nova Scotia today. Its image has been emblazoned on the Canadian dime for decades. Walters' skill and devotion to his ship helped the Bluenose hold off all challengers, even at the end of its illustrious career. "Sailing for Glory" also vividly brings to life the toil, danger, and adventure of the life of an Atlantic coast fisherman in the long-gone days of sailing.
