Arctic Workhorse: The RCMP Schooner St. Roch
by Delgado, James
Dodging between the Arctic floes, almost crushed several times, the RCMP vessel “St. Roch” was the first ship to conquer the hazardous Northwest Passage from west to east. Two years later, in 1944, she did it from east to west. Delgado follows the little ship from her construction in Vancouver in 1928, through her working life and famous voyages, to her resting place at the Vancouver Maritime Museum.
