378 page Treasury of Chicago Maritime History.It's a story of how a muddy canoe portage used by the Indians and French fur traders was transformed into a bustling seaport on the prairie a thousand miles from the nearest ocean. This treasury is a reminder that those who sailed before us on lake Michigan were not recreational boaters but part of a heritage that helped turn Chicago into the nation's busiest transportation hub and it all began on the water. For those who love maritime and Chicago history, this is a must read!
