Journey into history with a look at 28 tall ships—large, traditionally rigged sailing vessels—that traverse the Great Lakes and beyond.
Seeing a tall ship under full sail is an unforgettable experience. It’s like a trip back in time! From full-rigged ships that look like the pirate vessels of old to replicas of the sleek Baltimore schooners that helped win the War of 1812, tall ships still ply the waters of the Great Lakes. Each one carries its own incredible tales.
Tall Ships presents 28 vessels in an amazing full-color book. Beautiful photographs of the ships—inside and out—are supplemented by details about their size, armament, construction history, and previous owners, not to mention amazing stories about famous voyages, accidents, and storms.
Inside you’ll find
- Information about 28 ships, such as the Brig Niagara, the Pride of Baltimore II, and the S/V Denis Sullivan, with an emphasis on those that have visited previous Tall Ship Festivals
- Sensational stories of the ships’ most famous voyages, including their encounters with severe storms
- Full-color photos of the majestic ships and their interiors
- Contact information for each vessel, so you can inquire about participating in day sails, tours, or even serving on the crew
