Summary

Seeing a tall ship under full sail is an unforgettable experience—it's like a trip back in time! From full-rigged ships that look like the pirate vessels of old to replicas of the sleek Baltimore schooners that helped win the War of 1812, tall ships still ply the waters of the Great Lakes, and each one carries its own incredible tales. More than 25 ships are featured in this amazing full-color book, complete with vessel and crew details, as well as amazing stories about famous voyages, accidents and storms. Grab Tall Ships, and set sail for adventure!

The book, by Kaitlin Morrison, makes a wonderful souvenir and features the following:

Details about more than 25 ships, such as the Brig Niagara, the Pride of Baltimore II and the S/V Denis Sullivan, with an emphasis on those that have visited previous Tall Ship Festivals
Sea stories about each ship, including construction history, voyages, accomplishments, previous owners, accidents and storms
Contact information for each vessel, so you can inquire about participating in day sails, tours or even serving on the crew
