A former newsman, Marlin Bree built a small sailboat beside his home and sailed it on Lake Superior to explore the the North Shore and Canada's primitive and uninhabited islands of the ancient Voyageurs. It was a boat ride into remarkable adventure: a battle of one man against the inland sea. Here are true tales of dangerous storms, shipwrecks, and an island of silver on the notorious waters of the world's largest freshwater lake. Wake of the Green Storm is an inspiring true tale of seafaring on a last frontier.
