I love listening to and telling stories and I have heard and told many. Never have I heard a story like Clarabelle. I was introduced to the Clarabelle saga on Broughton Island nearly 40 years ago when a group of old fishermen were discussing odd events that have occurred on the island over the years. Huge seas that washed huts into the swirling ocean, sharks, whales, seals and sinking ships. Every story seemed to be far more difficult to believe than the previous tale. The last story told was about a cow that found her way to the island. No one could top that so they all went to bed.
Listening to ABC Radio some years later I heard reference to the same story. Could it possibly be true?
Research has revealed four people who actually saw the cow and who had vivid memories of the event.
This book is a result of all my findings. Stories like this one should never fade away.
