Within the boundaries of Isle Royale National Park lie the remains of some of this nation's most famous shipwrecks. The America, Emperor and Cox are only three of the significant treasures. The National Park Service study of these wrecks was the template for the future work of the Submerged Cultural Resources Unit. The study's archeological revelations had a broad impact on divers and shipwreck investigation, but the limited press run kept it from general distribution. Now, the publishers of Lake Superior Magazine produce a popular edition to shed important light on this historical record. This volume will be of immense interest to shipwreck enthusiasts, divers, researchers and historians.
