From the dust jacket: “For more than a century railway cars have been ferried across the Great Lakes by Canadian and American railroads. The car ferries dramatic story – their continual battle with devastating ice and sever climate – is here unfolded by an author devoted to them in all their aspects.  Readers will be impressed with the heroism, ingenuity and resourcefulness of the sturdy breed of men who sailed the car ferries.  They will bemoan the accidents and mishaps that befell them. They will compare varieties of ship design and observe the evolution of modern engines…”

The book is in very good condition.  The spine is tight and there are no loose pages.  The dust jacket shows minor shelf wear around the edges.  There are no marks, tears or writings in the book.
