The Titanic's disastrous maiden voyage in 1912 captured the world's attention a hundred years ago and still holds it today. Bound for New York, more than 300 of those aboard were heading for Canada. Rob Rondeau tells the stories of ten individuals who took that fateful voyage. Some were rich -- like the president of Canadian National Railways and a scion of Montreal's Molson family. Others were not, and would have been lost to history had they not been part of this unforgettable story. Some were heroes. Many never got the chance to be. Railroad tycoon, cabaret dancer, nursemaid and ex-soldier, Rob Rondeau weaves together the unique and compelling stories of ten people sharing one common thread -- they were all on board the Titanic, destination Canada. With extensive illustrations, many in colour, this book adds a new chapter to the Titanic story.
