Signed by author on FTP. "The Great Lakes are unique in the geography of the earth, and they have a singularly dramatic story. For three hundred years the sounds of travel have echoed along their shores, from the voyageurs songs and the schooners signal cannon to the deep voiced steamers of today. From seas of legend and wilderness waterways they have become one of the real trade routes of the world. The Long Ship Passing tells the story." The author gives you the geology, history and the romance of the five great bodies of water, from discovery by the early French "Voyageurs" in 1630 to the vanished fleet of the sailing vessels and the modern long shipsB/W Illustrations throughout.
