What Readers Say:
Opened the mail today and was very pleasantly surprised to find your book.
Though I've never been to the lake or seen any of the boats, I'm
enjoying reading about them, so for those who experienced the lake
rides, it has to be a fun-look back in time. - Audrey
When I was little my grandfather used to tell me about the big boats that ran on Conneaut Lake.
Reading this book helped me learn about the lake and about PopPop, too.
Makes me wish I could've seen
them - Mary
My 85 year-old (younger) brother, Bob, gave me Sailing Through Time for Christmas. We sat and talked for hours, remembering things now long gone. I thank you for writing this wonderful book. - Jim
Thank you for the book. You were right - Dad did enjoy having
a reason to get together with us to give me mine. As usual, you did a
great job! He stayed up late the night you dropped them off and read it
cover to cover. I can't tell you the last time he did anything like
that. He loves it!! - Pam
