"During the last century and a half, the Great Lakes shipping companies have printed a substantial amount of material relating to their operations. These publications are mainly sailing schedules, tourist promotional pieces, annual reports, and so forth, primarily issued in the form of pamphlets and brochures. This literature is scattered all across North America in scores of public repositories, quite often uncataloged in ephemera collections. This situation makes it very difficult for someone to find Great Lakes navigation paper, particularly if they are looking for a specific item.".

From thunderous broadsides traded between wooden sailing ships on Lake Erie, to the carrier battles of World War II, to the devastating high-tech action in the Persian Gulf, here is a gripping history of five key battles that defined the evolution of naval warfare--and the course of the American nation. Acclaimed military historian Craig Symonds offers spellbinding narratives of crucial engagements, showing how each battle reveals the transformation of technology and weaponry from one war to the next; how these in turn transformed naval combat; and how each event marked a milestone in American history. - Oliver Hazard Perry's heroic victory at Lake Erie, one of the last great battles of the Age of Sail, which secured the Northwestern frontier for the United States - The brutal Civil War duel between the ironclads Monitor and Virginia, which sounded the death knell for wooden-hulled warships and doomed the Confederacy's hope of besting the Union navy - Commodore Dewey's stunning triumph at Manila Bay in 1898, where the U.S. displayed its "new navy" of steel-hulled ships firing explosive shells and wrested an empire from a fading European power - The hairsbreadth American victory at Midway, where aircraft carriers launched planes against enemies 200 miles away--and where the tide of World War II turned in the space of a few furious minutes - Operation Praying Mantis in the Persian Gulf, where computers, ship-fired missiles, and "smart bombs" not only changed the nature of warfare at sea, but also marked a new era, and a new responsibility, for the United States. Symonds records these encounters in detail so vivid that readers can hear the wind in the rigging and feel the pounding of the guns. Yet he places every battle in a wide perspective, revealing their significance to America's development as it grew from a new Republic on the edge of a threatening frontier to a global superpower. Decision at Sea is a powerful and illuminating look at pivotal moments in the history of the Navy and of the United States. It is also a compelling study of the unchanging demands of leadership at sea, where commanders must make rapid decisions in the heat of battle with lives--and the fate of nations--hanging in the balance.

The fourth volume in the Secret Beaches series, one of two on the Salish Sea, covers 93 beaches in the southern Gulf Islands, including Salt Spring, Galiano, Saturna, Mayne, Thetis and Pender. At some locations, the selling point is a view of sandstone eroded into astounding curves and honeycombed lattices. At others, it's the chance of seeing the resident orcas of J1, K1 and L1 pods, whose summer home is the Gulf Islands. Theo's hand-drawn maps are indispensable, as each island marks its public beach access points differently, if they mark them at all. His detailed entries give comprehensive descriptions and an illustrative photo or painting for each beach. As usual, the charming paintings and photos are done by Theo himself. Whether seconds from the ferry or farther along a twisting, unsigned back road, the beach best suited to your adventure waits to be found in Secret Beaches of the Salish Sea.

Continuing in the vein of the Lincoln-prize winning Lincoln and His Admirals, acclaimed naval historian Craig L. Symonds presents an operational history of the Civil War navies - both Union and Confederate - in this concise volume. Illuminating how various aspects of the naval engagement influenced the trajectory of the war as a whole, The Civil War at Sea adds to our understanding of America's great national conflict. Both the North and the South developed and deployed hundreds of warships between 1861 and 1865. Because the Civil War coincided with a revolution in naval techonology, the development and character of warfare at sea from 1861-1865 was dramatic and unprecedented. Rather than a simple chronology of the war at sea, Symonds addresses the story of the naval war topically, from the dramatic transformation wrought by changes in technology to the establishment, management, and impact of blockade. He also offers critical assessments of principal figures in the naval war, from the opposing secretaries of the navy to leading operational commanders such as David Glasgow Farragut and Raphael Semmes. Symonds brings his expertise and knowledge of military and technological history to bear in this essential exploration of American naval engagement throughout the Civil War.

When a faded picture from a by-gone era sets in motion a perilous quest for five young men, they not only encounter harrowing danger in the forbidden, historical laden Niagara Gorge, but are forced to confront the swirling illusions of the world they knew changing their lives forever. "The day we decided to go down into the gorge of Niagara Fallsto walk on the ice bridgehad started out normal enough but quickly showed itself as anything but normal " Living in the City of Niagara Falls in the early 1960s, winters were simple for teenagers - like snowball fights and warm-ups at Ol Gordys general store, arguing about his wall of pictures. Its become a ritualsipping Cokes while studying the old photographs listening to Ol Gordys tales of adventure from long ago. "Ol Gordy was obsessed with Niagara and talked about it with anyone who would listenand with those who wouldnt, too. He knew everything there was to know about the Falls, especially from back in those old days, and he steered every discussion back to the times represented by those old dusty pictures." An ice ball to Kevins face, coupled with one picture in particular, sets them off on a journey to stand on the ice bridge of Niagara Falls, despite or perhaps because of Ol Gordy warnings that its not only extremely dangerous but against the law. The 'ice-bridge' of Niagara Falls steeped in history - fraught with tragedy - challenged by daredevils, bootleggers and tourists alike, lures them from the world they know down into the mysterious Niagara Gorge in the dead of winter. As in a time machine, they enter an exhilarating world of massive ice sculptors, impassable rapids and unassailable walls of ice. After a face-to-face encounter with the mighty Niagara Falls itself, from the bottom up, they find themselves in a rush to avoid being rescued while facing a series of life and death struggles with a Niagara they never knew existed. Peeling back time, we meet the hermit who lived on the Falls and who achieved his quest - to become one with it; we experience the day the Falls stopped and explore a riverbed never before exposed to human footprints until the water returns in a frenzy; through the eyes of a runaway girl we witness the cruelty of slavery as she rides the Underground Railroad with her mammy and pappy - paying the fare to ride that train to freedom and we feel the deception and hatred clashing between cultures when the path of a British drummer boy converges with that of an Iroquois brave at the Devils Hole massacre on the top of the escarpment. Bridges is much more than a simple tale of camaraderie and teenage exploits. Author d k LeVick creates a fascinating and engaging tale that is rich in both historical fact and ingenious fiction, as he weaves stories of long-ago, bringing together a series of unique historical events in a twist of mystery and revelation with the group of 1962 teenagers caught up in the complexities of a changing world around them. LeVicks narrative is so evocative that you will feel youre along on the various expeditions; his attention to detail is so precise that you might just hear the ice crack and feel a tremor beneath your feet. Bridges takes you on a kaleidoscope journey of adventure and history exploring the questions confronting people of all ages through all times.
