The National Museum of the Great Lakes is excited to announce the release of a new book titled Shipwrecks of Lake Ontario: A Journey of Discovery. This book contains stories of long lost shipwrecks and the journeys of the underwater explorers who found them, written by Jim Kennard with paintings by Roland Stevens and underwater imagery by Roger Pawlowski.
The recent discovery of the wreck of the
British warship Ontario, “the Holy Grail” of Great Lakes shipwrecks, solves
several mysteries that have puzzled historians since the ship sank more than two
centuries ago. Now, for the first time, the whole tragic story of the Ontario
can finally be told.
