Welcome to AtlanticWrecks.com! Official website of Newfoundland author Robert C. Parsons.

Robert C. Parsons is one of Newfoundland's most popular and prolific writers specializing in stories of shipwrecks, rescue and survival in the waters off Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as Canada's Maritime Provinces. In his twenty-three years of research and writing of North Atlantic ships and sailors, survivors and victims, especially those of Newfoundland and Labrador, his sea stories now number in the hundreds and he has published twenty-two books.

Beginning as a hobby, Parson's passion for the history and heritage of the sea led to his interviews with sailors and fishermen who "stood before the mast" on all-sail wooden ships. Although their numbers are now greatly reduced, Robert has continued his research through oral history supported by archival materials.

Retired from his teaching career, Robert devotes much of his time to researching, writing and promoting the sea-going history of Canada’s eastern provinces, of the ships, and the people who sailed them.
