This is a great read. Considering the limited resources available to author Curt Brown, the research is outstanding and the retelling is captivating. At the heart of the storm, the book is a can't-put-it-down page-turner. The back stories of the crews and the key characters in Duluth add greatly to the story of the epic storm that struck early in the century.

A great book for anyone interested in Lake Superior, Diving in Lake Superior or boating on it. Bought it for a gift for spouse and he rated it a five. He really enjoyed reading it. I did also.

There's something buried deep down in our collective pasts that seems to yearn for a good, adventurous shipwreak story.
Although this book is non-fiction and a social history, it foot the bill for me. As a life long Minnesotan, and having lived through several blizzards, although (thankfully) on land, I was able to visualize the blinding snow and imagine clearly the shreaking winds. In fact, I found myself shivering through the passages dealing with the freezing spray!
My only regret is that I didn't have the opportunity to read this while spending a weekend on the north shore in early December,2008 as booming ten-foot waves were crashing against the rocks below me,and after viewing three huge frieghters "crabbing" along slantwise near shore during the storm in the darkness!
