Lake Michigan Shipwrecks : South Haven to Grand Haven ~ Kit Lane / Paperback / Published 1997
Our Price: $15.50
From the Back Cover
Shoal beaches, unpredictable river channels and a scarcity of harbors make the southeast coast of Lake Michigan its own sort of challenge to Great Lakes sailors. From its first recorded history to the prsent day more than 200 boats have wrecked in the 46 miles of shore between South Haven and Grand Haven in Michigan. Some have been rescued to sail again, others have found a permanent home on the sandy beaches or in the off shore waters. Most of their stories are told as they were recorded in newspapers of the day, on life saving sttion reports, or later written down by the participants themselves, retaining the excitement and often tragedy, of the event as it unfolded.
