​Ninety Years Crossing Lake Michigan by Grant Brown, Jr.

24.95

In 1892, the Ann Arbor Car Ferries shook the transportation world by doing what was then deemed impossible-carrying loaded railroad cars by ship across 62 miles of open water between Frankfort, Michigan and Kewaunee, Wisconsin.  With passion, acuity and remarkable detail, Grant Brown describes the nearly one hundred years of crossings-from their beginnings with James Ashley's bold new idea of car ferrying down to the last fight for survival before the Michigan Interstate Railway Company finally closed in 1982.
