In Pirates, Crooks & Killers: The Dark Side of the Great Lakes, historian Frederick Stonehouse tells tales of piracy and murder. Although the Great Lakes never had swashbuckling pirates like those that swept the Caribbean Seas, there were low-lifes willing to rob, pillage, and slit a throat when the opportunity presented itself. Learn about “moon cussing,” “mickeys,” and other sordid happenings on and around the Great Lakes. Another excellent Stonehouse read.
