Ariadne's Death: Tales of Heroism and Tragedy on Lake Ontario
by Gateley, Susan Peterson
95 pages. "Shipwrecks, the result of bad luck, bad management, or some combination of the two, were all too common on Lake Ontario in the past. Here, you'll read of the unfortunate end of the schooner Ariadne and the difficult death of the Noyes. Steamers were also at risk as the story of the Quinte's end by fire and the Lady of the Lakes' close call show. The book describes events at Oswego, the most lethal harbor for old sailing ships on the lake for a number of years. Captain Horatio Nelson Throop, inventor and innovator, the mysterious Captain Smith, and the heroic beer cooler will keep you turning the pages of this latest offering from Skipper Sue." ABOUT THE AUTHOR: "Susan Peterson Gateley's articles about Lake Ontario have run in numerous local and national publications and she has authored 4 full length books. She holds a Coast Guard license and offers sailing charters."
