Real, Honest Book with a Great Lakes Captain
From the Introduction:
"This is a book about how a book changed a life. All his grown years, Gary Schmidt sailed the Great Lakes as master of a vessel. For most of those years, he was in charge of crews and of massive loads of product. For many people, his was a ship that passed as a slow-moving blur way off in the distance from a shore. Such ships hold a mystique and mysteries for most people. They are "out there."
An opportunity arose for Gary to bring the "out there" to a reality in a book in which he explains all.
Not many Great Lakes captains write books.
Rare is the book that tells what happens after a captain's book comes out while he is being shadowed by chemotherapy.
This is the extraordinary "Real, Honest Book with a Great Lakes Captain."
