Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Leaving port from Superior, Wisconsin on a sunny November day, the crew of the "Edmund Fitzgerald is looking forward to a routine crossing of deep Lake Superior. Heading for a port in Cleveland, the giant transport ship is loaded with ore that will be used to build cars. But disaster is building in the wind as a gale storm begins to track after the great ship. This suspenseful retelling of the last hours of the doomed vessel pays homage to all sailors who traverse deep waters, in fair skies and foul. Atmospheric paintings from award-winning artist Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen bring the story to life. "Since that fateful November 9 in 1975, once a year, on the anniversary of the wreck, a bell rings out as a special remembrance for the men lost that night and for all mariners lost at sea. The bell rings forever where heroes are found. The soul of the sailor is held in its sound.
