Product description

Forget Jack and Rose....... If Hollywood director James Cameron was looking for a real-life romance he need have looked no further than the real story of Montreal hockey player , Quigg Baxter and Berthe Mayne, the Belgian girlfriend he was smuggling home on the ill-fated liner. The revised centennial edition of author Alan Hustak's Titanic, The Canadian Story, recounts not only their doomed romance, but tells the absorbing true-life stories of the other 130 or Canadian bound passengers aboard the ship. There are many books about Titanic, but Hustak's critically acclaimed version tells the story from a Canadian perspective. Few authors know as much about Titanic's Canadian connection as he does. His updated version includes new photographs and material, including Hilda Slaytor's account of the voyage in recently discovered diaries, the poignant story of the Hickman brothers bound for Manitoba and the tale of third class passengers Neshan Krekorian bound for St. Catharines, Ontario who survived both the Armenian genocide and the sinking. The original manuscript was written years before Cameron's blockbuster movie was produced, and again demonstrates that truth can often be more compelling than fiction. Among Titanic's 1300 passengers were a large contingent from Montreal and Winnipeg and people from Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Halifax. With few exceptions their stories were largely overlooked or ignored by U.S. and British authors who have written about the disaster.
