    Ross did an excellent job for a self published book. I have a personal autographed copy of it and hope he writes another for his newer discoveries.

    I have a few of those, but pulled a few more from my shelf for our “virtual library”.

    The “granddaddy” here is Not as old as Havighurst, but is Dana Thomas Bowen’s “Shipwrecks of the Lakes.” Originally published in 1952. Mine is the 1977 edition. A collection of 38 or 39 stories of various wrecks.

    My grandparents got me the book when I was a kid. It inspired an interest in shipwrecks that eventually led to me diving.

    Don't forget to get a copy of Dwight Boyer's Ghost Ships of the Great Lakes. Probably the best piece written in that time frame. I have a first edition of both Bowens and Boyers books that were signed in the 50s by Bowen. (Boyer was 1968).
