About This Book

From the Native water monster who raised canoe-killing storms to thousand-foot cargo ships, sailing the Great Lakes has inspired autobiography, folksong, poetry, and fiction about some of the most beautiful, most dangerous, waters in the world. In the words of the men and women who lived them, here are the dangers and triumphs, the ghosts and mysteries, the daredevil risks and losses, spanning the worlds of Native journeys, wars on the lakes, early canoe travel, schooner work, yacht racing, steamer travel, and the great bulk carriers. Their accounts are edited with introductions and technical explanations, illustrated with photographs and drawings, and accompanied by notes and a glossary of sailing terms. Heavy-weather sailors, arm-chair sailors, and every reader in between will find something interesting. White Squall is a history of the lakes written by those who knew them best in all weather and all eras from the beginning to the present.
