Windjammers: Songs of the Great Lakes Sailors

In the days when schooners carried most of the trade and passengers on the Great Lakes, the boats were alive with song. Passage songs, work chanteys and story-songs of sinkings and disasters gave the lakes a vast, unwritten library. Author, journalist and Michigan State University professor Joe Grimm shares the stories and music collected by Ivan Walton in the last summer there was a commercial sailing vessel on the Great Lakes, from the book Windjammers, published by Wayne State University Press.
