A Mind at Sea – This is a really interesting and very enjoyable book about the life of Henry Fry, a ship owner in Quebec City in the 1900’s. It is also a history lesson of the times, both the political as well as social side. As well as showing his attributes, i.e. his concern for the men working in the docks and on the ships, it also shows his difficulties dealing with his severe depression. John Fry’s descriptions of Quebec city and the docks and ship building yards are wonderful. A really good read.
