So I have to be honest:


the archival photos are awesome, and i'd say a good third of the photos I haven't seen before, HOWEVER, being a Great Lakes guy, I just ended up having several bones to pick after reading this book. This book could have benefitted from more RESEARCH. Several times, such as in the case of the Grassy Island, Grosse Ile, Kewaunaw Waterway and Windmill Point, the descriptions were vague and the author even said "dates and info is confusing". While I certainly don't disagree, I just feel like a better attempt could have been made. However, especially for archival images, this book is certainly of a good value, I just wouldn't trust every date and photo description.
