Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
He wanted to sail the entire shoreline, all 2900 miles of it, in his home-built, 20-ft. centerboard boat, Persistence. But fierce winds and awesome waves caused by a northeaster forced Bree to leave the water at Silver Bay, Minn., and take to the road, trailing his boat around Lake Superior. From his starting point at Bayfield, Wis., Bree had a leisurely sail to Madeline Island, the Apostles, Duluth, Minn. He chatted with retired sailors, boat-builders and fishermen about old times on the lake; there are stories of storms, shipwrecks and the mystery of the Fitzgerald, which disappeared during a storm in November 1975. Later, Bree went to Isle Royale on a day trip, then headed into Canada to the fishing village of Rossport, Ontario, and Lake Superior's North Shore wilderness. In addition to its tremendous local interest, this will appeal to readers interested in maritime history as well as to yachting enthusiasts. Photos. (February)

Single-handed sailers are a special breed. Many of them concentrate on ocean sailing, but Bree here recounts his adventures on the great freshwater Lake Superior. This body of water, at times treacherous and changeable, can provide the excitement, thrills, and challenges of sailing the sea. Bree goes a little beyond the usual sailing descriptions and discusses the lake's fragile ecology and the threat to it posed by human activities. He also recounts conversations with people who live and work on the lake. Particularly interesting is his explanation of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald , a huge ore boat. This offers more than the usual book on sailing. Su s an Ebershoff-Coles, Indianapolis-Marion Co. P.L.
