For more than two hundred years, thousands of giant sailing ships traversed the Great Lakes carrying cargo and passengers. The memory of the romance and elegance of these beautiful ships has almost been forgotten in the search for greater efficiency and speed in our modern world. C.H.J. Snider (1879-1971) chronicled this era in his 1,303 "Schooner Days" columns for Toronto’s The Evening Telegram between 1931 and 1954. A great marine researcher and artist, Snider himself worked aboard schooners in his youth and studied first-hand the development of the Great Lakes region. Coupled with Snider’s writings are those of Robert B. Townsend, who, besides introducing Snider’s stories, adds some of his own.

The Great Lakes at Ten Miles an Hour

The Great Lakes are a remarkable repository of millions of years of complex geological transformations and of a considerably shorter, crowded span of human history. Over the course of four summers, Thomas Shevory rode a bicycle along their shores, taking in the stories the lakes tell—of nature’s grandeur and decay, of economic might and squandered promise, of exploration, colonization, migration, and military adventure. This book is Shevory’s account of his travels, shored up by his exploration of the geological, environmental, historical, and cultural riches harbored by North America’s great inland seas. For Shevory, and his readers, his ride is an enlightening, unfailingly engaging course in the Great Lakes’ place in geological time and the nation’s history. Along the northern shore of Lake Huron, one encounters the scrubbed surfaces of the Canadian Shield, the oldest exposed rock in North America. Growing out of the crags of the Niagara Escarpment, which stretches from the western reaches of Lake Michigan to the spectacular waterfalls between Erie and Ontario, are the white cedars that are among the oldest trees east of the Mississippi. The lakes offer reminders of the fur trade that drew voyageurs to the interior, the disruption of Native American cultures, major battles of the War of 1812, the shipping and logging industries that built the Midwest, the natural splendors preserved and exploited, and the urban communities buoyed or buried by economic changes over time. Throughout The Great Lakes at Ten Miles an Hour, Shevory describes the engaging characters he encounters along the way and the surprising range of country and city landscapes, bustling and serene locales that he experiences, making us true companions on his ride.

They can be as still as a millpond, as angry as any storm swept ocean. The Great Lakes and the major states bordering them—Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota—are the heartland of America. The land supplies the goods: grain, meat, timber, and steel. The Lakes provide passage for those goods around the world. The two—land and water—are inseparable, their destiny interlocked. Tales of the Great Lakes encompasses the stories of the men who built the Midwest—the giants of industry, builders of cities, intrepid seafarers, writers who chronicled the rise of the great metropolises of Chicago and Minneapolis, and the immigrants who made America. Yet beside this ambition and fervor, there co-exits the spectacular beauty of the shore; the woods and lanes of the Northern Peninsula teeming with game and fish; the rolling farmland of the plains, raising up its bounty to industrious farmers, its pastures dotted with thousands of cows whose milk is destined for the famous cheeses of the region. Here you can leave the city and quickly find yourself in a country paradise. A hundred years ago, with Chicago rising from the ashes, the country was still virgin—the source of wonderful stories of daring and courage, of exploration and discovery. Here was a land for men and women of drive and courage.
