The Gales of November: The Sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald
by Robert J. Hemming

Immortalized in song by Canadian balladeer Gordon Lightfoot and still argued over by Great Lakes experts, the fate of the Edmond Fitzgerald and its crew has attracted more widespread attention than any of the other thousands of shipwrecks recorded on the Great Lakes. A fascinating and marvelous book regarding the Edmiund Fitzgerald.
