-----------trade paperback, about 5.5 x 8.5 inches, a Near Fine copy, signed and inscribed by Macdonald, laid into this copy is a bookmark advertising this book, 192 pages, b&w photos, ---"25 October 1918 is the day that goes down in history as the Inside Passage's worst maritime disaster. Over 350 people lost their lives and the CPR's British Columbia Coast Service was forever tarnished when the Princess Sophia went down off Vanderbilt Reef in Lynn Canal between Skagway and Juneau, Alaska. The authors relive the tragedy of the Princess Sophia and her last voyage. To this day, many questions still linger or was this sinking really just a 'peril of the sea' as the inquiry concluded. Read about the ones who answered the SOS and their efforts to save the passengers and crew on board, but who later were the ones to recover the bodies instead. This book is part of West Coast maritime history and makes for very interesting reading."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
