The breaking apart of the Daniel J. Morrell, along with Dennis Hale's remarkable survival on a life raft on a storm-ravaged Lake Huron, comprises one of the most compelling shipwreck stories in Great Lakes history. In Deadly Voyage, Andrew Kantar takes his reader through a tale that is, in turns, harrowing, tragic, frustrating, uplifting, suspenseful, and, ultimately, historically important. This book is a vital addition to any collection of Great Lakes maritime books.
--Michael Schumacher, author of Mighty Fitz and Wreck of the Carl D.
While reading Mr. Kantar's book, I reflected on my life. I thought of all the hardships that I faced in my childhood and adult life. Although my life was rough, I think it taught me a lesson that helped me survive the sinking. One thing I learned was to never ever, for one moment, give up.
--Dennis Hale, sole survivor of the sinking of the S.S. Daniel J. Morrell
