Silk Sails Book



As Silk Sails entertainingly demonstrates, existing records show that women of the Atlantic region were owners of boats, ships and waterfront properties from as early as 1650. Women's involvement in early fishing adventures as sole owners and “co-partners in trade” was real and substantial. This sample of approximately 500 Newfoundland women depicts a hardy, durable and tenacious woman who was more than equal to the challenges and opportunities of her time.
