Thanks to Gordon Lightfoot's song, everyone knows the story of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Prior to that the Great Lakes have claimed numerous ships and crews. The Carl D. Bradley was such a ship, a huge limestone carrier that sank in a November gale take all but two members of the crew with her.
Michael Schumacher has researched the history of Carl D, spoke to the families of those lost and those who were involved in the search and rescue. He brings an intimacy to the story that leaves you hoping that some crew would survive though you know they will not. His work will both entertain and educate the listener.
Going beyond the Carl D, he also tells of the loss of her sister ship, Cedarville; as well as the Daniel J. Morrell.
Where does Wreck of the Carl D. rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Pretty high. He made it very interesting.
Any additional comments?
It was a tragedy that I was unaware of until a friend told me about it. This book was very informative to me--having known nothing before I listened to it.
