Disaster Great lakes

DISASTER GREAT LAKES
Megan Long


Disaster Great Lakes chronicles nearly fifty of the most terrible events to strike people and surrounding communities on the five Great Lakes.

Erratic weather on the Great Lakes has brought down ships from War of 1812 schooners to the legendary Edmund Fitzgerald. On shore, great fires devastated young cities like Chicago and Toronto and cut huge swaths through the forests, leaving thousands dead. Train wrecks, explosions and environmental disasters like the Love Canal have been painful catalysts of change.

In all the stories, the myriad ways people respond in times of crisis reveal the human core in all its complexity. Richly told and illustrated with dramatic archival images, this 148-page book includes a map and a concise list of the worst catastrophes in American and Canadian Great Lakes history. 148 pages with b/w photographs
