Tattletale Sounds: The Edmund Fitzgerald Investigations book by Ric Mixter

Tattletale Sounds is the latest book on the Great Lakes most famous shipwreck, the Edmund Fitzgerald, which sank on November 10, 1975.

Diver/historian Ric Mixter has interviewed dozens of men who built, sailed and explored the wrecksite, visiting the Fitzgerald himself in the Delta submersible in 1994.

His book separates legend from fact with 300 pages of photos, diagrams and first person accounts of the largest ship ever lost on the inland seas.

Mixter is a native of Gwinn in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

He will give a lecture about Great Lakes maritime history, including six of the largest shipwrecks in the Great Lakes. Ric has been featured on PBS and the History Channel and served as president of the Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association.
