I am a huge fan of Gordon Lightfoot’s The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. I have always loved it – it might be my favorite song. Given this longtime obsession of sorts I naturally grew interested in the story of the ship. I have been to The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point, MI, the nearest point of American land to where the ship went down, but I have always been interested to learn more. This Christmas my mother-in-law, at my wife’s suggestion, gave me Mighty Fitz: The Sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Michael Schumacher. It is a great read and an excellent, updated account of the mysteries of the accident. Fascinating that the controversies exist to this day. I highly recommend for shipwreck buffs in particular and those interested in maritime affairs in general.
