Storms and Sand by Grace Truman
Michigan maritime history includes epic stories of shipwrecks, heroic rescues, tragic losses, and changing times. Storms & Sand is a glimpse into the world of the brave men of the Big Sable Point, Michigan, U.S. Life-Saving Service/U.S. Coast Guard station, located on land now part of Ludington State Park. Storms & Sand presents the history of the station, sacrifices by the life-savers and Coast Guardsmen, and their courageous struggles in rescuing Lake Michigan shipwreck victims. Storms & Sand also chronicles lesser-known events in the lives of the men, their families, and the Big Sable Point Lighthouse keepers.
