Overview

Wreck Ashore: The United States Life-Saving Service on the Great Lakes by Frederick Stonehouse

From the mid-1970's until it transformed into the U.S. Coast Guard in 1915, the U.S. Life-Saving Service was responsible for the safety of the seas. "Despite the danger or difficulty, the lifesavers invariably accomplished the rescue and their deed became legendary". This book details the Great Lakes exploits of this dedicated agency, promising to fill a void in the annals of history. An important addition to the Great Lakes record.
