This gripping and suspenseful narrative begins as the team sets out upon its quest, an expedition fraught with disappointments and surprising discoveries as the explorers plow through archives and scour the lake bottom. An unexpected meeting with a victim's son prompts a search of a different kind, one that would be more illuminating than submerged sections of twisted aluminum.   Weaving past and present together through meticulous research and heart-rending interviews, V. O. van Heest paints a captivating portrait of the victims, vividly recreates the last few hours of Flight 2501, and reveals that the answers are sometimes found in unexpected places.

 Sport: Ship Dog of the Great Lakes is Poppy-Approved! 

In 1914 crew members of the lighthouse tender Hyacinth rescued a stray puppy from the Milwaukee River

and named him Sport. For the next twelve years, this charming Newfoundland-retriever mix lived the life of a ship dog.

In this beautifully illustrated children’s book based on historical documents and photographs, readers share in Sport’s

adventures while discovering the various ways lighthouse tender ships helped keep the lake safe for others.

 

 A signed book plus an adorable plush make a great gift combo!
