Legends and Lore of Lake Ontario

Many mysteries lie beneath the lake's sunlit surface. Odd sightings of monsters and ghosts and peculiar events  like fish and frogs raining from the sky have long inspired stories. For centuries Lake Ontario has held its secrets, some of which are now revealed in this collection of lake lore. The book describes a number of bizarre and odd occurrences such as the a comet that sunk the schooner “Charity” and frogs and fish falling from the skies. It also details the sudden catastrophic crash in population of the lake's most mysterious fish- the amazing American eel. In “Legends and Lore” Peterson Gateley re-tells famous old tales and shares some new mysteries as well.

Living On The Edge With Sara B

As another budget boater once wrote just because it can be done, doesn't mean it should be done. But when an unexpected inheritance lands in the author's mailbox and is spent on eBay for an elderly small schooner, a journey ensues.

Join Sara B's crew as they explore green water on the edge and meet a few of the folk who sailed there with her. Edge dwellers all, they are hardy, adaptable, creative, and resilient. Not always practical, but frequently amazingly ingenious, their actions will amuse and entertain you in this tribute to the little schooner who didn't sink and to a fast vanishing boating life style

Maritime Tales of Lake Ontario

Shipwrecks and survival on an inland sea


Shipwrecks are a part of Lake Ontario's history. But so is innovation, wealth building, heroism, and bungling on a grand scale. You'll find examples of each of these actions in this collection of historic incidents and personalities who once worked on and by the waters of this Great Lake between 1728 and the present. Sail the lake of the past with Admiral Rene La Force, a tough and cunning survivor of the French and Indian War, and with Captain James Van Cleve, a pioneer of steam navigation, businessman, and historian. Walk the waterfront in the days of canvas, pine tar, and wooden schooners, visit the lake's loneliest island once a summer home to one of the world's most powerful men, and explore the St. Lawrence Seaway-boon or boondoggle to millions, in this collection by author sailor Susan Peterson Gateley. Illustrated with numerous photos and artwork
