Lake Effect: A Deckhands Journey on the Great Lakes Freighters by Richard N. Hill, Richard Noel Hill

A deckhands coming-of-age story of sailing the Great Lakes steamboats during the social and political turbulence of the early 1970s, Lake Effect is a vivid and memorable account, told in a light-hearted and entertaining narrative style, of life aboard the giant ore boats. In the early 1970s, the author sailed on four different US Steel freighters as a deckhand and deckwatch. Ten years later, he enrolled in the Great Lakes Maritime Academy with the intention of becoming a deck officer, and sailed on the 1000-foot Columbia Star. This humorous yet poignant memoir follows his voyage of self-discovery.
