Recommends it for: Fans of L.M. Montgomery (with a caveat)
In the summer of 1883, the world-famous clipper "Marco Polo" ran aground off the coast of Cavendish, P.E.I. near young Lucy Maud Montgomery's home. Maud wrote about this event in her journal, and one of her first literary compositions was a piece on the wreck of the Marco Polo.

Inspired by the L M Montgomery's journals, this book tells the story of a shipwreck off the coast of PEI and how it affected the town of Cavendish. Lovely drawings.
