Since the beginning of commerce on the Great Lakes there has been a desire to build larger and more efficient ships. Beginning in the nineteenth century shipbuilders began to increase the size of their creations as new materials and construction techniques became available. This process of innovation would continue throughout the twentieth century as improvements to the shipping channels on the Great Lakes opened up new possibilities in ship design. These efforts culminated in 1972 with the commissioning of the first thousand-foot vessel to sail on the inland seas, the STEWART J. CORT. This ship set a new benchmark in the hauling of raw materials and would be followed by twelve more ships of her class which collectively revolutionized the US flagged shipping industry on the Great Lakes. These ships represent such a significant step forward in the evolution of the Great Lakes freighter that even today, nearly forty years after they began to enter service, they remain unsurpassed in size and carrying capacity. The story of this class of ships includes the earliest of the thousand-footers, the STEWART J. CORT and the PRESQUE ISLE, two unique vessels built incorporating highly innovative features many of which were not carried on in subsequent designs. This tale also includes vessels such as the JAMES R. BARKER and the BELLE RIVER which became patterns for the ships that followed them. In this volume, each of the thirteen thousand-foot ships is described to relate each of their unique operational histories along with the purposes for which they were built. Included are numerous never before published photographs, portraying these ships in both their previous and current operations.

About the Author:

Raymond A. Bawal, Jr. was born in 1968 at Nuremburg, West Germany and as a young child he traveled the world because his Father was in the Army. In 1978 his family settled in Saint Clair County, Michigan when his father left the Army. Because of his experiences abroad as a young boy he became fascinated by the history around him and so he decided to take his love to the next level and write his first book, Ships of the St. Clair River, in 2008. In 2009 he completed his second book, Twilight of the Great Lakes Steamers, the sister publication to Ships of the St. Clair River. Titans of the Rising Sun was his first World War Two book. Mr. Bawal, Jr. currently lives in Macomb County Michigan.
