Soundings - - Books -

From hand-built ca­noes to 700-foot ships, if there’s a ves­sel that’s plied the Great Lakes, there’s a good chance you can read about it in Vic­to­ria Brehm’s White Squall: Sail­ing The Great Lakes. The sto­ries are writ­ten in the words of the men and women who lived aboard these unique ves­sels, in­clud­ing Na­tive Amer­i­can wa­ter­craft, sail­ing ships, steam­ers, lak­ers and oth­ers. You’ll also learn about a Na­tive Amer­i­can wa­ter mon­ster that con­jures ship­killing storms. The book is il­lus­trated with draw­ings and pho­tos. ($30, Ladys­lip­per Press)
