"After 100 years, the definitive book about the Great Storm of 1913 has finally been written. In November’s Fury, Michael Schumacher deftly interweaves the stories of the scores of ships sunk, grounded, or damaged by the freak November hurricane with the tragic stories of a cross-section of the more than 250 Great Lakes sailors that died or were forever psychologically scarred." —Mark Thompson, author of Graveyard of the Lakes
"November’s Fury is a moving and historically rich account of spectacular survivals, daring rescues, and heartbreaking loss. Michael Schumacher’s meticulous research and adroit storytelling give voice to the hundreds who perished in the Great Lakes storm of the century, revealing a human tragedy of immeasurable magnitude. November’s Fury touches all of our hearts." —Andrew Kantar, author of Deadly Voyage and Black November
"Schumacher’s storytelling is comprehensive, hitting its best notes when it details the stories of the men working that November night." —Star Tribune
"Schumacher does a great service to the memories of those who lived through the storm, sharing in their own words their stories of survival." —Chicago Book Review
