Overview

Immortalized in song by Canadian balladeer Gordon Lightfoot and still argued over by Great Lakes experts, the fate of the Edmund Fitzgerald and its crew has attracted more widespread attention than any of the other thousands of shipwrecks recorded on the Great Lakes.

The 729-foot ore freighter and its entire crew mysteriously and suddenly disappeared during a violent November storm on Lake Superior in 1975. In Gales of November, author Robert J. Hemming takes you dramatically through a total "you are there" experience. You share the increasing foreboding of the crew members and ache to warn Captain McSorley—whose last recorded words on the ship's radios are "Going along like an old shoe. No problems at all."

For anyone fascinated by the lore of sea and ships. Gales of November will be a haunting and marvelous book.
