“Most Great Lakes enthusiasts are familiar with the Great Storm of 1913 and the resulting horrific loss of ships and men. There have been many other excellent volumes written on the subject over the years, and now comes another, by Canadian journalist Bruce Kemp. Kemp’s research included interviewing the last surviving witnesses and combining through courtroom testimony and newspaper reports, adding insights from contemporary ship captains and weather scientists about what caused that momentous event. Forty years in the making, this worthy 283-page volume is a detailed, engaging and highly personal account of disaster that still resonates with those who love the lakes.” – Roger LeLievre, boatnerd.com
