Interwoven with legends and lore, this story chronicles one man's adventure on Lake Superior, one of the world's most dangerous bodies of water.
As a Great Lakes sailor I thoroughly enjoyed this book which was a pleasing mix of one shipwright's adventure and maritime history. The narrator has a wonderful voice and superb diction.

I have never sailed but I love to be either on the water or watch from the shore. I recently visited Lake Superior's North Shore and found the lake to be a fascinating subject. In his book, Mr. Bree vividly conveys the power and beauty of the lake. His book doesn't just relate his sailing experience but also provides interesting glimpses into its history. As he travels from port to port, I found his conversations with local residents to provide an added depth to the book.
The narrator does a great job of capturing the tone with which the book was written.
