I've read a number of Great Lakes shipwreck books, and "Ghost Ships of the Great Lakes," by Dwight Boyer is definitely my favorite. He does a fine job of telling the story of each ship clearly and as accurately as possible. He never loses the reader in a maelstrom of technical terms, and he never gets overly editorial or overly preach-y about his own opinions about whose fault the shipwrecks were. He manages to take each chapter and work it into a narrative which is both historically feasible and dramatically compelling at the same time. One can feel the heartbreak at the end of the Benjamin Noble's voyage, or the spine-tingling mystery surrounding the Marquette & Bessemer No. 2, or the piquancy of the Andaste captain's new hat.
Also, I wish to mention that the book is well edited. There seems to be a tendency among Great Lakes history publishers to put out sloppily-edited books that abound with misspellings, horrendous punctuation, careless type-size changes for no reason, all to the point where they become distracting to the reader, and should be embarrasssing to the publisher. That is not the case here; Freshwater Press can be proud of an immaculately-edited book.
