Superships of the Great Lakes tells the story of the thirteen thousand-foot ships built for service on the Great Lakes. These ships are the largest vessels to ever operate on the inland seas and are so big that they can never leave the Great Lakes. This heavily illustrated book relates the evolution of the Great Lakes freighter while also relating the individual histories of each of these unique vessels along with the background which prompted their construction. Also included is a detailed analysis of the impact that the thousand-foot ships made upon the Great Lakes shipping industry.
