Giving Up the Dead
The old timers who grew up around Lake Superior say that "Superior doesn't give up her dead." With 350 shipwrecks and more than 1,000 lives lost, it is a fact one must consider when venturing out and sailing the Great Lake. The contrast between its magnificent beauty, harsh conditions and great danger make it one of the most enticing areas to explore.
