Blue Ice: The Sealing Adventures of Artist George Noseworthy
Blue Ice is an illustrated biography based on the extraordinary diary of the late artist George A. Noseworthy. In 1970 he boarded the 253-foot Chelsey A. Crosbie out of St. John’s, NL, bound for the ice fields and the annual seal hunt off Northern Labrador and Newfoundland. Until this time, he was the only artist who had actually gone to “the front.”
Blue Ice dramatically records Noseworthy’s time in the wild. As he was portraying the life of the courageous sealers through his art, he was also recording the daily hunt in his journal.
This is the true account of George Noseworthy’s passion for adventure — and the men of Newfoundland’s sealing industry whose bravery he immortalized in his art.
