The Great Lakes are the subject of a new photo book by Mark Schecter

We in Windsor Essex have the blessing of being able to access those great bodies of water known as the Great Lakes. Few of us have travelled thru all five of the Great Lakes...and fewer still have spent a portion of that time aboard a lake freighter as it makes it's way from Superior to the St. Lawrence Seaway. But Mark schacter can say he's done that. And he's documented what he saw in a new photo book titled Sweet Seas - Portraits of the Great Lakes.
