place: the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan." --- Bernie Arbic, local
historian and author of

A good read." --- Karl Bohnak, Michigan meteorologist and author of

maritime historian and author of
Graveyard of the Lakes

"A tremendous read, a unique glimpse into the soul of a Great Lakes
sailor ....
Lake Effect is a must read for every Great Lakes reader's

very rare look at what makes the sailors tick, why they follow the lakes as
a career, for better or worse." --- Frederick Stonehouse, maritime
historian and author of Many Great Lakes books including the bestseller,
The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
