For nearly 100 years the steam powered freighter ruled the waters of the Great Lakes. However, since the late 1960s the steamer began to be supplanted by the diesel powered ship. As of the 2009 season there were only twenty steam powered freighters remaining in operation on the Great Lakes. Twilight of the Great Lakes Steamer tells the individual histories of each of these ships, some of which have been repowered or retired in the short time since this book was printed.
