Book Recommendation - THE GREAT LAKES TRIANGLE
« on: January 15, 2017, 05:50:17 PM »
THE GREAT LAKES TRIANGLE by Jay Gourley, is a well-researched, sometimes tedious little volume of succinct anecdotes about plane crashes and plane and ship disappearances in the Great Lakes area.

I'm from the Upper Midwest. I live two miles from Lake Michigan. We here have always known about the high strangeness on Lakes Michigan and Superior, but I'd never before heard our area compared to the famous Bermuda Triangle.

The same phenomena that occur there have also occurred here - unexpected squalls (sometimes snow), luminescent fog, compass and other navigational anomalies, inexplicable engine failure, sometimes the complete absence of bodies and/or debris, and ghost sightings of missing vessels.

This is a very quick read, 187 pages including Notes.

That is also the 1st time that I have been made aware that the area may have similarity to the Bermuda triangle.

I can however imagine if anywhere within the USA that could have similarities that it could be at the largest inland water zone...

I recall that there were a few new discoveries and theories as to some of the possible causes of the incidents in the Bermuda triangle...such as one theory being that some intense bubble forming effects that were created from what may had been extreme methane gas that was escaping from cracks in the Earths surface below where the Ocean in the triangle area is....that may account for many a sinking ship or boat..

whether or not it concluded for a high percentage of sinking ships that maybe were later discovered on a large enough scale to suggest it was possibly the main reason behind the mystery, I am not sure..

but I am not sure about any good other new theories that may account for  Aircraft incidents that go missing.

Read a good book about that too.

THE SINKING OF THE EDMUND FITZGERALD: THE LOSS OF THE LARGEST SHIP ON THE GREAT LAKES by Charles River Editors.

The book is only 42 pages long, but it's a quick and interesting read, which I picked up in November to refresh my memory for the morbid anniversary of its loss.

There are photos, which beef up the narrative.

They're pretty sure she broke her back while suspended between two waves.

There are some YouTube videos of the wreck if anyone is interested.
