This is no dull economic review, for the author brings the industry alive with stories of individual characters and events. -- Shipping: Today and YesterdayThe launching of the little barquentine White Wings from a Lauzon shipyard in 1893 brought to an end the construction of square-rigged sailing ships at Quebec, and industry which produced over 1,600 stately vessels to carry timber and masts from the North American heartland to British ports.

The Charley-Man presents over 200 photos, tables, drawings, graphs, and reproductions of archival documents to illustrate the story of these ships and the shipbuilders.
