Overview

This meticulously researched book provides a fact-filled guide to shipwrecks on the Great Lakes. A former harbormaster, "Skip" Kadar became fascinated with the regional history and began researching ships that now lie on the bottom of the freshwater seas. That led to a series of factual books, with this being the first from AAeB. This well-illustrated volume lists the ships and their stories - including the Edmund Fitzgerald heralded in the Gordon Lightfoot song. Kadar makes his home on Lake Huron.

About the Author

Wayne "Skip" Kadar writes fictional pieces under the name Justin Maxwell so as not to muddy the waters for readers of his non-fiction Great Lakes regional books.
Skip taught at the high school level for several years then became a high school principal. After retiring he worked as a harbormaster at a marina on the Great Lakes and researched and wrote eight historically factual books about the Great Lakes region; books about ships that now lie on the bottom of the freshwater seas. He also writes about notorious criminals from the region.
Now, Skip spends time with his wife, Karen, at the family cottage outside Manistique, in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula, at their home in Harbor Beach, Michigan on Lake Huron and winters in the fabulous Florida Keys.
