Shipwrecks of the Lakes


Tales of shipwrecks have a definite fascination and a universal appeal.  They are not only exciting and thrilling but usually contain some element of mystery.  They recount the struggle of man to survive, pitting himself, or in several instances, herself, and the ship against the elements of destruction, calling forth his utmost skill, his strength, and his ingenuity, often with his very life as the high stake.  Some emerge heroes; others are never heard from again.
