You have seen the movie White Squall, now it is time to read the true account of that final, fatal voyage of the school ship Albatross. White Squall - Last Voyage of Albatross is written by Richard Langford, the English Professor, and one of the few survivors, aboard that doomed school ship in 1961. He has described, in flowing prose, all the beautiful ports of call, the camaraderie of the crew and of course, the tension and problems that are inevitable with such an undertaking. As you turn the pages of White Squall you will become one of the crew aboard this great ship as she visits the then, unspoiled lands and people of those far off ports. You will understand why people would want to accomplish such a difficult undertaking and all the joys and hardships of life aboard. When you have finished this truly great sea adventure, you will feel you were there, on that final, fatal voyage.

From the Native water monster who raised canoe-killing storms to thousand-foot cargo ships, sailing the Great Lakes has inspired autobiography, folksong, poetry, and fiction about some of the most beautiful, most dangerous, waters in the world. In the words of the men and women who lived them, here are the dangers and triumphs, the ghosts and mysteries, the daredevil risks and losses, spanning the worlds of Native journeys, wars on the lakes, early canoe travel, schooner work, yacht racing, steamer travel, and the great bulk carriers. Their accounts are edited with introductions and technical explanations, illustrated with photographs and drawings, and accompanied by notes and a glossary of sailing terms. Heavy-weather sailors, arm-chair sailors, and every reader in between will find something interesting. White Squall is a history of the lakes written by those who knew them best in all weather and all eras from the beginning to the present.
