Overview

This is the story of a dry cargo ship which worked the Great Lakes for 69 years. In her glorious but quiet life, she never lost one single mariner's life, and completed safely all her voyages. She survived the weather, wars, depression and attacks from most every direction, in a period when the human race witnessed the transition from horse and buggy transportation, to space flights. Her journey from her place of birth to the scrap pile parallels many lives on the waterways.
This is a modest homage to the people who built "Jupiter", and to all those mariners who sailed her.
