    a tragic sea story told exceptionally well

    Schumacher recounts how the super-freighter "Edmund Fitzgerald" went down with all hands during a monster storm on Lake Superior nearly 40 years ago. His narrative moves along briskly, and he tells a tragic tale with respect for the victims and their families. Lots of interesting detail on how ships are made and what they can be expected to do in the roughest seas. A really good story well-told by a master storyteller.

    Great Read and Difficult to Put Down

    I have read several books on the SS Edmund Fritzgerald and this is one of the good ones. It not only provides the story of the Fritz, it adds to the Witch of November story by discussing the Bradley and the Morrell sinkings. It provided all sides of the theory regarding her sinking and quite frankly, I am among the "bottomed out" supporters. Having dove on the SS Regina (victim of the 1913 strom and turned turtle), I could envision the strength of the stroy and the final moments of the ships and crews lives. Wonderful read and another great stroy of the Great Lakes. Superior in this case.

    Better books

    There are much better books on the fitz the gales of november is a good one. The mighty fitz talks more about other ships then the fitz for instance there was at least one capter when there were 7 pages on the bradley.

    One of the Great Mysteries of the Great lakes

    This is a tale that has been on TV and documented in several books and invistigations. Yet, thee is no real answer to what actually happened to send 29 men to a cold and watery grave only 15 miles from safety.

    Most know the story, but this version seems to look deeper into the men who lived the life of a Great Lakes Sailor.

    I feel I hve to travel to Whitefish Bay and see it with my own eyes after reading this very interesting and human sory of a terrible tragedy.
