A Spirit Deep Within by Joan E. Roué
" Early in his long and productive career, naval architect William James Roué designed a schooner whose performance as a working and racing vessel would make her name and image immortal. The Bluenose story is told in this accounting with a difference, through the life and career of W.J. Roué – by his great-granddaughter, from family anecdotes and papers, research, and interviews. A second edition published in 2002 concludes Ms. Roue’s account. A Spirit Deep Within makes a special contribution to Bluenose literature by highlighting the life and work of the remarkable man who designed the Queen of the North Atlantic ".
