A breathtaking photographic gallery, Classic Ships of the Great Lakes presents diverse views of current and historic vessels that have traversed the vast freshwaters of the American Midwest. Chapters are divided by ship type, and a brief historical account introduces each section: passenger ships, whalebacks, bulk carriers, self-unloaders, cement carriers, oil tankers, super ships, and more. Enthusiasts will enjoy seeing these ships skim the glassy waters, bore through stormy whitecaps, and cleave the icy surface of the Great Lakes.
Join author and photographer Robert Campbell for fascinating shipboard scenes aboard the Henry Steinbrenner, theKinsman Independent, and the Kinsman Enterprise. Each ship has a life and a story, from commission to retirement, and Classic Ships of the Great Lakes ensures they are remembered.
