"The Great Lakes are unique in the geography of the earth, and they have a singularly dramatic story. For three hundred years the sounds of travel have echoed along their shores, from the voyageurs' songs and the schooners' signal cannon to the deep-voiced steamers of today. From seas of legend and wilderness waterways they have become one of the great trade routes of the world. 'The Long Ship Passing' tells that story."--Jacket
