From Thunder Bay Press
Since the 17th century, when the first wooden vessels of colonists and adventurers set a course across them, the lakes have claimed many ships as well as the lives of those unfortunates aboard them. Shipwrecks of the Great Lakes narrates the tales of more than 100 of them.
Including photographs of the boats, it is also a document of change and progress, showing how the ships have been developed over the centuries as well as the industrial cities and towns that have grown from the wealth brought by the shipping lanes of the lakes.
Fully illustrated with archival photography. Chronological listing of wrecks. Dramatic stories of the ships’ last moments – the tragedies, courage, and the miraculous rescues.
144 pages, 9″ x 12″, hardcover.
