introduction by Don Macgillivary
A novel of open sea sealing, pirate gold and romance from the Atlantic Ocean to the Southern seas set in the early 1900s.
Sprott Gabereau is shaken out of his retirement in his home village of Arichat, Cape Breton, by an old "nemesis" for one last sealing expedition. Gabereau makes his last excursion to the Southern Ocean as a sealer but his real motive is to find the treasure of the pirate Andrea Ferrara. Battling the elements, other treasure seekers and matters of the heart, Far Gold is set in the decline of the days of sail in Atlantic Canada and a time of rapid changes to the fisheries.
