Full Description

In 1679, a French ship referred to as the Griffon left Green Bay on Lake Michigan, bound for Niagara getting a cargo of furs. Ed Butts has gathered stories and lake lore in this fascinating, frightening volume. The wreckage of ships and the bones in the folks who sail them litter the bottoms of the 5 lakes: Ontario, Erie, Huron, Michigan, and Superior. But those who actually worked on the Great Lakes ships knew differently. Even though the Griffon's fate remains a mystery, its disappearance was most probably the result of the very first shipwreck on a Great Lake. Unpredictable winds could capsize a vessel at any moment. Since then, much more than six thousand vessels, big and small, have met tragic ends on the Excellent Lakes. Neither the Griffon nor the five-man crew was ever seen again. For many years, saltwater mariners scoffed at the freshwater sailors from the Great Lakes, “ puddles” in comparison using the vast oceans. A ship caught in a storm had a lot much less room to maneuver than did one at sea. For anyone living on the shores of the Wonderful Lakes, these tales will inspire a new interest and respect for their storied past. Shoals and reefs, uncharted rocks, and sandbars could snare a ship or rip open a hull.
