Maritime Tales of Lake Ontario

$ 19.99

Author:  Susan Peterson Gateley

Easternmost of the Great Lakes, Lake Ontario is bordered by both New York and Ontario. Upon its pristine surface, countless vessels have sailed, but its bottom depths are littered with the skeletons of shipwrecks, including HMS Ontario, caught and destroyed in one of the sudden storms that often turn this sea-like lake deadly. Daring mariners, male and female, have seen their share of peril, and battles during wars between British Canada and the United States have also been waged here. From Huron canoes to today's "Sunday sailors" who venture from shore only during warmer months, local author Susan Peterson Gateley tells some of the lake's most exciting stories.
