Mysterious Islands:Forgotten Tales of the Great Lakes
Andrea Gutsche, Cindy Bisaillon

300-page book & 72-minute video
An island ruled by a king who declared it his own country, an island used as a hideout by a notorious pirate, an island mined by pre-historic copper miners... these are only a few of the stories in this remarkable collection. The book and film, Mysterious Islands, is a fascinating historical journey to islands in the vast basin of the five Great Lakes. Standing removed and alone, islands have been central to some of the most important, outrageous and tragic events in Great Lakes history, from a decisive and bloody naval battle in the War of 1812, to Prohibition rumrunning, to harrowing tales of shipwreck and rescue. The waves of time have left many islands behind, but remnants of the past still mark their shores- burial grounds, grand hotels, abandoned quarries, lighthouses, strategic forts, and even a castle. Indispensable for boaters, this guide book is brimming with stories of island names, shipwrecks, abandonded places, folklore and intrigue.
