I bought this at a shp wreck museum in Michigan. This book is very detailed of all of the Great Lake wrecks over the years. This book does have some black and white pictures scattered throughout the book of the ships.
If you're big into ship wrecks this book is for you!!! (and a great read if you're going to be going to the Great Lakes area, especially if you wanna check out the ship wrecks and the ship wreck museum (if I remember right, the ship wreck museum is in the U.P. of Michigan, but I know if you go to the Soo Locks, you can get on an actual ship that was turned into a museum to honor the fallen ships of the past, but there is another ship wreck musuem besides that one)
