Shipwrecked and Rescued: The City of Bangor (Paperback)


Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days
(This book cannot be returned.)

More than 6,000 shipwrecks have been recorded on the Great Lakes, but only one offers a true-life adventure like the 1926 rescue of the City of Bangor off the Keweenaw Peninsula in upper Michigan. A fierce November storm tossed the ship with a crew of 23 and 240 new Chrysler automobiles onto a Lake Superior reef. For the first time, Shipwrecked and Rescued: Cars and Crew tells the near-tragic story of lost and desperate shipmates floundering for two days in the deep snow and near-zero temperatures. Jorgensen's detailed research and collection of historical photos chronicles what happened, introduces the key players, and finally reveals the fate of those collectors' prizes in the century since.
