Wolff Jr. has been the acknowledged dean of Lake Superior shipwreck historians. His reputation is well deserved. Lake Superior Shipwrecks is clearly the definitive work on the subject. No other published material approaches it in its comprehension and insight. It is not only a thoroughly researched and documented history of the maritime disasters of the big lake, it is also in many ways an adventure story. In incident after incident, Wolff carefully reconstructs the human element of a shipwreck; the fear of the sailors aboard the dying vessels and heroism of the Life~Saving Service crews, bravely battling the fury of the lake to make a rescue against impossible odds. From the mishaps of the earliest traders to the tragedy of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Wolff details the accidents of more than 1,000 vessels. It is a treasure trove of Great Lakes history. Lake Superior Shipwrecks will be prized by marine historians as well as by anyone who has ever experienced the overwhelming romance of old Gitchi Gumee. This superb volume belongs in everyone's Great Lakes library. Heavily illustrated with rare photographs, the book is scrupulously documented. It is a detailed, scholarly and masterly work.
