Author: Ed Butts
Since the sinking of the Griffon in 1679, the shoals and reefs, uncharted rocks, and sandbars of the Great Lakes have taken more than 6000 vessels to their watery grave. A ship caught in a storm on the Great Lakes had much less room to maneuver than did one at sea. The wreckage of ships and the bones of the people who sail them litter the bottoms of the five lakes: Ontario, Erie, Huron, Michigan, and Superior. Ed Butts has gathered stories and lake lore in this fascinating, frightening volume. For anyone living on the shores of the Great Lakes, or just fascinated by them, these tales will inspire a new interest and respect for their storied past.
