By Russell Bellico
No lakes have a greater claim to American history than Lake George and Lake Champlain. In this richly illustrated account, historian and diver Russell Bellico moves through the military and commercial periods on these strategic lakes, drawing from historic accounts and images, shipwrecks, and other submerged cultural material.
"Bellico's book meticulously traces the history of these two lakes. In all of this material Bellico presents much primary data as well as a complex synthesis of events. . .the volume also offers copious textual and citation footnotes and additional page-end comments...Exquisite photographs provide a counterpoint to the historical illustrations in the text." -- American Neptune: A Quarterly Journal of Maritime History 2001, Softcover, 396 pages,
