When a Loose Cannon Flogs a Dead Horse
Our Price: $12.95

by Olivia A.Isil
By far the most popular book in our store, this is a delightful collection of nautical metaphors and colloquialisms now in common use in the English language. Thought-provoking and entertaining examples of these phrases are drawn from all forms of literature. This is no “hodgepodge” of nautical terms; it’s “chock-full” of seaworthy lore. So, “batten down the hatches” and prepare for a “first rate” read. 122pp. Softcover 1996

Lake Champlain
Our Price: $21.99

Researched, written, and complied by Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.

Nestled between the Adirondacks of New York and Vermont’s Green Mountains, Lake Champlain offers 120 miles of tranquil beauty with a rich, bustling history. Picturesque waterfront communities established in the 18th century recall the era when the Champlain Valley’s natural resources—iron, lumber, granite, marble, and potash—were shipped to distant ports on lake sloops and schooners. By the early 19th century, Lake Champlain was connected with the canals of New York and Quebec, and the resulting economic boom lasted for 100 years. Apples, hay, bricks, and finished goods were shipped on thousands of workaday canal boats that were also floating family homes. Massive steamboats carried travelers and tourists drawn to the fresh country air, and lakefront camps sprang up everywhere. Automobiles traveled over Lake Champlain on ferries and bridges. Through stunning historical images from the archives of Lake Champlain Maritime Museum and other regional collections, Lake Champlain tells the story of this busy commercial corridor and pastoral recreational destination. Published by Arcadia Publishing, as part of their Images of America Series.
