Submerged stories from the inland seas The newest addition to Globe Pequot's Shipwrecks series covers the sensational wrecks and maritime disasters from each of the five Great Lakes. It is estimated that over 30,000 sailors have lost their lives in Great Lakes wrecks. For many, these icy, inland seas have become their final resting place, but their last moments live on as a part of maritime history. The tales, all true and well-documented, feature some of the most notable tragedies on each of the lakes. Included in many of these tales are legends of ghost ship sighting, ghostly shipwreck victims still struggling to get to shore, and other chilling lore. Sailors are a superstitious group, and the stories are sprinkled with omens and maritime protocols that guide decisions made on the water.
Award-winning journalist Anna Lardinois owns Gothic Milwaukee, the city's most popular haunted, historical walking tours. The tour was voted "Best Milwaukee Tour" in 2017 by readers of local newspaper, Shepherd Express, with nominations for 2018 and 2019. She also created Walking Milwaukee, a collection of history-based, self-guided walking tours of Milwaukee and the suburbs. These collections are sold locally at Whole Foods, west elm, The Milwaukee Art Museum, and a variety of local shops.
