Early praise for SUNKEN …

“It’s been a real pleasure to read through Kathy Groth’s SUNKEN. It’s a great summary of Lake Superior’s maritime history, and the shipwreck remains preserved there, to say nothing of the various institutions and public attractions available to us today.” – Pat Labadie, Great Lakes maritime historian

“Wow!! What a great book. I think adults will like it, too. I want a copy!” – Brendon Baillod, maritime history collector
