In the Teeth of the Northeaster: A Solo Voyage on Lake Superior

"For one summer, the author sailed alone on Lake Superior in a 20-foot wooden sailboat he built in his backyard. His journey has been hailed as a Blue Highways by boat. He writes about kind-hearted waterfront people, early voyageurs, shipwrecks, storms, gold, and an island of silver that was once the world's richest mine. In the Teeth of the Northeaster has tales of seafaring on the world's largest freshwter lake, including the last hours of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Ultimately, Bree encounters a storm that gives Superior the reputation as being one of the world's most dangerous bodies of water. His gripping adventure during a Northeaster will thrill readers. "Fascinating," says Sail magazine."
