Journey to the waters off the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Northern Lake Michigan and join author and shipwreck hunter Ross Richardson in exploring the histories and mysteries of the Manitou Passage, one of the deadliest areas on the great lakes.  An undiscovered fleet of shipwrecked ghost-ships lies off that rugged coast, just waiting to be found.  Learn their stories and explore a newly discovered mystery schooner thought to be one of the most intact shipwrecks on the planet.

His website, michiganmysteries.com, is dedicated to the stories of the missing ships, missing aircraft and missing persons of the Michigan Region.
