Format: Paperback
Anne Renaud's book "Into the Mist" The Story of the Empress of Ireland is a very informative book. It is a great book on Canadian History telling us about the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the late 1880's to transport people and cargo to Canada and to deliver mail to Japan and China, via Canada. The Empress of Ireland was one of the second group of Empresses fleet ordered by CPR, sailing from 1906 to 1914 when the great disaster happened. What a great loss of life in Canadian history.

The book is good reading for pre-teens to adults. Anne has also included many great pictures, time capsules and a lexicon all to help the reader understand the time period better. Thank you, Anne for the great book you have written.

Anne Renaud, the Montreal author of several children's books on Canadian history, has written the story of the ill-fated ship, which includes a chronology of events leading up to the disaster and insightful mini-biographies of people who perished in, or survived the sinking. The references to famous people who travelled on the Empress of Ireland throughout the ship's sailing carreer, such as Robert Baden-Powell founder of the Scouting movement, Guglielmo Marconi and Rudyard Kipling, are also interesting and enlightening.

Having traveled to Canada in the 1950s as an immigrant, I could relate to much of the description of shipboard life which is described so well by Ms. Renaud.

This book is aimed at pre-teens and teens, but would appeal to all ages. It is another example of Canada's interesting history.

Format: Paperback
A great book which gives the reader an excellent understanding of the tragic sinking of the "Forgotten Empress". The sinking was overshadowed by the outbreak of WWI. More passengers were lost from the sinking of the Empress of Ireland than the sinking of the Titanic. Few families in Canada at that time were not touched by the disaster, having lost a family member or close friend. My great grandmother and my late wifes great grandmother both did not survive the sinking.

The book is easy to read and it is easy to forget that Into The Mist was ritten with children as the intended audience.

Format: Paperback
Author Anne Renaud recounts the compelling story of the ill-fated liner Empress of Ireland, which sank after a collision in the Gulf of St Lawrence in May 1914, taking over a thousand people to their deaths. While the book is targeted to young readers, it will get a deservedly warm reception from older readers as well. The style is straightforward and compelling, and numerous photographs help recreate life aboard one of the great trans-Atlantic liners of the Edwardian era.
Ms Renaud has succeeded in bringing this story to a new generation of readers, making them aware of the Empress and its role in Canadian history.
