Submerged stories from the inland seas

The newest addition to Globe Pequot's Shipwrecks series covers the sensational wrecks and maritime disasters from each of the five Great Lakes. It is estimated that over 30,000 sailors have lost their lives in Great Lakes wrecks. For many, these icy, inland seas have become their final resting place, but their last moments live on as a part of maritime history.

The tales, all true and well-documented, feature some of the most notable tragedies on each of the lakes. Included in many of these tales are legends of ghost ship sighting, ghostly shipwreck victims still struggling to get to shore, and other chilling lore. Sailors are a superstitious group, and the stories are sprinkled with omens and maritime protocols that guide decisions made on the water.

Anna Lardinois, a maritime disaster enthusiast, owns Gothic Milwaukee, Brew City's most popular haunted, historical walking tour company. The creator of Walking Milwaukee and the 11th Pfister Narrator, Lardinois loves to celebrate the best Milwaukee has to offer. The author's previous titles include Milwaukee Ghosts and Legends and Storied and Scandalous Wisconsin.
