Description: "Great Lakes Ships We Remember III" completes the trilogy of the series. Like its two predecessors this volume encompasses a very special era of history and tells the story of more than 160 vessels which, in their passage, touched the lives of many and left their passing indelibly etched in the fabric of life along the Great Lakes. As in the first two volumes, "Great Lakes Ships We Remember III," contains an abundance of carefully selected photographs from innumerable sources. These along with the tediously researched history, visually chronicle the life of each vessel. All writings and photographs have been complied to represent both the U.S. and Canadian perspective.
"The Great Lakes Ships We Remember" series has become an indispensable guide to the classic vessels of the Great Lakes. Each book details hundreds of long gone lake vessels, giving complete demographics, history and rare photos that often appear nowhere else.
