Aprašymas

A Mind at Sea is an intimate window into a vanished time when Canada was among the world's great maritime countries. Between 1856 and 1877, Henry Fry was a Lloyd's agent for the St. Lawrence River, east of Montreal. The harbour coves around his home in Quebec were crammed with immense rafts of cut wood, the river's shoreline sprawled with yards where giant square-rigged ships, many owned by Fry, were built.

As the President of Canada's Dominion Board of Trade, Fry was at the epicentre of wealth and influence, but his home province of Quebec was the scene of a raw criminality of a type seldom seen today.  He fought vigorously against the kidnapping of sailors and the fatal deck-loading of ships. He also fought vigorously against his own demons - mental illness.

Fry was a colourful figure and a reformer who interacted with the famous Canadians of the day - people such as Wilfrid Laurier, Sir John A. Macdonald, and Sir Narcisse-Fortunat Belleau, the Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec.
