Inhaltsangabe:

A detailed and richly illustrated history.

To create this unprecedented collection of photographs and essays, the authors spent years visiting museums and archives, and interviewed Lake Erie experts, from professional historians to longtime residents. The result is Lake Erie a remarkable portrait of daily life, industry and commerce on this dynamic Great Lake.

The opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 connected the Hudson River to the Great Lakes and unleashed the financial potential of the American interior. The industrialists who located factories with ready access to raw materials soon became legends: Rockefeller, Henry Wells and William Fargo, Sherwin and Williams, Charles Brush and Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone, B.F. Goodrich, Carnegie, Frick, Westinghouse and Mellon.

The book is divided into chapters covering:

  • The lake's prehistory
  • Early settlement
  • Role in the American Revolution
  • Economic boom from 1815 to 1880
  • High Industrial period from 1880 to 1945
  • History of dramatic storms, shipwrecks
  • Role in the Underground Railroad and Prohibition
  • Wealth of flora and fauna

Vom Autor:

Ken and Julie Sobol have lived on both the American and Canadian sides of Lake Erie and share a fondness for its unique geographical and social history. To create this unprecedented collection of photographs and essays, they spent years visiting museums and archives and interviewed all manner of Erie Lakers, from professional historians to long-time residents. The result is a remarkable portrait of daily life, industry and commerce on this historic Great Lake.

Lake Erie played a significant role in the post-Revolutionary War era and a crucial one in the War of 1812. A few years later the building of the Erie and Welland Canals opened up the entire Great Lakes basin for settlement, and shortly after that the discovery of oil, coal, iron ore and other natural resources soon unleashed the phenomenal industrial potential of the region. Rockefeller, Edison, Firestone, Goodrich, Carnegie, Westinghouse, Wells and Fargo, and many other legendary industrialists all first made their marks on or near the southern shore of Lake Erie. The other side boasted fewer magnates but many equally interesting characters -- Tecumseh, Sir Isaac Brock, Laura Secord, Abigail Becker, Hiram Walker, and Guy Lombardo, among others.

This detailed and richly illustrated book looks at the lake's prehistory, its early settlement, its role in wartime, its economic boom from 1815-1880, the High Industrial Period from 1880 to 1945, its history of dramatic storms, shipwrecks, and fire and ice catastrophes, its recreational history and its wealth of flora and fauna.
