Ghost Ships of the Great Lakes
This is the awesome story of the missing "ghost ships" of the Great Lakes, ships that disappeared, often in complete mystery, and were never seen again. The chronicle is a varied one: sometimes the cause was a titanic storm with huge seas and terrifying winds; or it was blinding snow that destroyed all sense of direction and massive ice that by its weight bore the ship beneath the surface; often it was mechanical failure or disregard of safety for the sake of gain. In researching this book, the author scanned thousands of old newspaper and shipping journals, read hundreds of letters from relatives of lost skippers and their crews, shipping company reports and files. The accumulated data reveal many crucial facts never before known, to document the chapters of this thrilling book.
