Tragic, memorable, or miraculous, the author here dramatizes the most spectacular shipwrecks and most incredible survivals in the history of the Great Lakes. Re-creating scenes of high courage and screaming panic, Ratigan writes of strange tales, like the captain who went down with his ship rather than let her die alone, and includes the three greatest killer storms in modern times on the freshwater seas -- among them, the squall that caused the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, to which an entire section of the book is dedicated. These are stories destined to be retold by generations of sailors and lovers of the Great Lakes.
