Lake Boats: The Enduring Vessels of the Great Lakes, Paperback / softback Book

Lake Boats: The Enduring Vessels of the Great Lakes Paperback / softback


This large-format, full-colour pictorial pays tribute to the many historic ships still at work on North America's Great Lakes, from ancient cement boats such as the 100-year-old St Marys Challenger to venerable ""straight-deckers"", self-unloaders and 1,000-footers sailing under the familiar flags of prominent Great Lakes fleets: Algoma Central, Upper Lakes, Lower Lakes, American Steamship, Canada Steamship Lines and others.

This expanded and revised edition updates the original text and includes 32 additional new pages and 30 new photographs, for a total of 193 extraordinary full-color images by the author and other fine transportation photographers.

The extraordinary range of images - from close-up and interior views of engine rooms and pilothouses to panoramic scenes of these noble workhorse vessels sailing North America's inland seas - makes Lake Boats a remarkable celebration.
