At long last, this handsome 413-page hardcover volume is available to the general public. A project of the Marine Historical Society of Detroit, the book was edited by Rev. Peter J. Van der Linden in conjunction with John H. Bascom, Rev. Edward J. Dowling, S.J., Peter B. Worden and Dr. Richard J. Wright. We are proud to say that all of these eminent gentlemen are members of the Toronto Marine Historical Society.

Great Lakes Ships We Remember is a collection of detailed histories of some of the best-known lake vessels of the past and is well illustrated with many photos, some of which are extremely rare. The book is available for $29.50, a most reasonable price considering the high quality of the product. Those who did not take advantage of the advance subscription should address Freshwater Press Inc., Room 258, The Arcade, Cleveland, Ohio 44114, U.S.A. This is one of the most important recent additions to the available literature of the Great Lakes and is a "must" for the library of anyone interested in ships.
