REMEMBER THE MAINE!... REMEMBER THE TITANIC!... Now remember the GRIFFITH Off Cleveland, Ohio in 1850

In the early morning hours of June 17, 1850, the side-paddle wheel steamer G.P. Griffith, carrying over three hunderd English, Irish and German immigrants caught fire and ran aground in Lake Erie off Cleveland, Ohio. Only thirty men and one woman survived. The sinking is regarded as the third most tragic number of deaths in a Great Lakes shipping disaster. The Griffith is about who these people were, how they came to be aboard the Griffith and how she caught fire and sank.

Review:

"The Atlantic crossing becomes a reading experience I will never forget." "There are two things which make your portrait of this journey to America in those times so interesting: your exquisite mix of historical fact with the vivid, life-like fictionalized characterizations of your people."

-Robert Gover, author of the international bestseller ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR MISUNDERSTANDING, which is still in print 38 years after it first appeared. He has published six other novels, three novellas, a poetry anthology and a non-fiction book. Mr. Gover lives with his wife Carolyn, in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. -- Publisher Comments
