Shipwrecked - Vessels Meet Doom on the North Shore, by Ron Wrigley

sku Product SKU:  Shipwrecked0001CDN

Lake Superior is the largest body of fresh water in the world, comprising 31,200 square miles of water surface. Thedeepest part of Lake Superior is approximately 1,300 feet.Darkness begins to set in at the 200-foot level, and below 350 feet the water becomes ink black.

Many vessels and human beings have met their fates on these icy waters. Seamen describe the gales on this lake as being as abad as any they’ve seen in the world. Eyewitness accounts tell of the killing waves, blinding snowstorms and the bone-chilling coldness of the water. Many people survived these shipwrecks only to die of exposure on some bleak and barren Superior shore. For all Superior’s beauty, it takes a special breed of man to make his living on this unpredictable lake.

On the following pages you will learn of the acts of heroism by captains and seamen alike, who were responsible for saving many lives, by risking their own.

I have written this book to fill what is an obvious gap in the history of shipwrecks in Lake Superior. Many books have described in great detail the wrecks that have occurred in other parts of the lake, but none have written of the sorrow, hardships, and heroism of those in northern Lake Superior.

In researching this book, I have referred to many sources, from old newspaper reports to official government inquiries to find out the circumstances of each wreck. From these sources

I have put together what I believe is the most probable account of the doom of each vessel. Each piece of source material that I have used plus others that I found very interesting have been included in my bibliography for those who wish to research further the wrecks of northern Lake Superior.

This book has been written for both the historian and the scuba diver, for only those wrecks that remain beneath the surface of Lake Superior have been included.

I have tried to include every known wreck in northern Lake Superior, but I have excluded a few where little or no information was available or where there was some doubt as to whether or not the wreck had been salvaged.

I hope everyone who reads this book will enjoy it as much as I did in researching and writing it. Shipwrecked

I am an outdoor gal, having lived in Hovland, Minnesota my entire life. I love doing anything outdoors. I have always been interested in art, photography and wildlife. They all work well together. Over the years I have had a good many up close and personal experiences with most of the wildlife up here. Sometimes I had a camera, sometimes not. Some got pretty intense. But, they all ended well. My dog, currently a golden retriever named Toby, goes with me on almost all of my expeditions to find something photo worthy. He is a bird dog, for sure. But, camera season lasts all year long. I like to take photos to show the beauty of nature as it really is....as I see it. I don't feel a need to use Photoshop to do a lot of enhancing of what nature has created. I don't have a problem with someone using artistic license to make a nice piece of art. But, I do keep it pretty simple. I actually took up photography, more seriously, when I started working full time. Working didn't leave me a lot of time to do much serious painting. But, with photography, I could pick up and go when I had time. Plus, it was a good excuse to make time for outside activities. So, what you see in my photos is a lot of my every day life. I do most of my photos in the winter as I love the ever changing ice formations on the shore of Lake Superior. But, I take wildlife photos throughout the year. I hope you enjoy what you see. :)
