Great Books & Videos of the Great Lakes
Updated 3/5/2000

This page contains one of the largest selections of Great Lakes books available anywhere.  I intend to add every new and used book in my collection with a review of each.  Because Great Lakes books are often hard to find, I hope to present a comprehensive listing of reference materials for the Great Lakes marine history enthusiast.  Visitors who have difficulty finding a title or who wish to suggest one for inclusion should email Brendon Baillod.  I will continue to add titles as I am able.  Use your browser's "find" command to search for specific titles or authors.
