Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Charles Cassady, Jr. graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Journalism. This is his fourth book with Schiffer Publishing and the second one about the history of the Great Lakes. He lives in Ohio.

More About the Author

At a young and foolish age, Ohio native Charles Cassady Jr. underwent a ritual apprenticeship as a disciple of Dark Forces, to attain prestige and power.

But something went wrong.

Instead he found himself a twisted outcast. Banished by men. Shunned by women. Driven from those happy places of joy, love, warmth and light. Now sustained only by an unquenchable thirst for revenge, Charles Cassady dwells in shadow realms as a foul, malformed and tortured wretch.

...In other words, a fairly typical unemployed Journalism graduate. The Syracuse University alumnus' writings, ink-pen renderings and photographs have appeared in the the Heartlands Today book series, from Bottom Dog Press, as well as the Cleveland Free Times, Scene, West Life News and the Morning Journal of Lorain.

He furthermore contributed detailed adjudication of alternate realities and parallel universes (fancy talk for he was a film critic) to TV Guide Online, the Cleveland Movie Blog, Video Librarian, the Cinebooks Motion Picture Guide and the VideoHound and Speelfilmencyclopedie book families.

He lurks in the Cleveland-Akron notch of the Rust Belt.

Format: Paperback
Charles Cassady used his skills as a journalist to put together an alphabetical collection, including photos and sketches, of places and things of a paranormal nature of the Great Lakes region.

An introduction gives background of the Great Lakes area, its history and its longtime geographic importance. Charles tells the history of the lakes importance within the shipping industry, including the shipwrecks and their stories. There is a map of the Great Lakes illustrating the layout and connections of the "Sister Lakes".

The book is a well laid out A-Z listing of all five lakes and surrounding areas. The stories range from rumors, myths, legends, and lore. Charles tells of mermaids, ghost ships, lake monsters, UFO sightings, unexplained lights, haunted lighthouses, and much more.

A bibliography is included at the back of the book as a reference for much of the information listed. In addition, Charles offers websites and an index of places referred to within the book.

This is a very well done encyclopedia of unusual phenomena within a special area of America. It is a great addition to any library that includes not only history, but legends and lore.

As a Michiganian, I REALLY enjoyed this book! Very well researched & well written. The only drawback was that sections of text were printed on hard-to-read black-patterned backgrounds. At least, they were too difficult for me, with my store-bought reading glasses! Otherwise, I'd have give 5 stars!
