November: The Cruelest Month


    November is long considered the worst month for Great Lakes shipwrecks. Hunderds if not thousands of rotting hulls on the bottom give silent testimony to the "gales of November" and their destructive power not only of the ships but more important, the crews that sailed them!

    This book examines many of the great November wrecks. Some like the Novadoc, William H. Davock, Anna Minch, Algoma, Mataafa and John Owen are well known. Others like the W.W. Arnold and Maplehurst less so. All tell the terrible story of death on the Great Lakes.
