Edmund Fitzgerald


Life in a Thundering Bay: Voices from Thunder Bay’s Past
$ 19.95
Edited Tania L. Saj & Elle Andra-Warner

A remarkable collection of stories that brings to life the early days of Fort William and Port Arthur, Ontario. Amazingly, many of these stories have been lost or difficult to find for over 100 years – this is the first time they have been brought together in a book. 

In their own words, pioneers of Northern Ontario describe their unforgettable experiences: read about Catherine Vickers’ spectacular canoe journey to Kakabeka Falls in 1873; witness a ‘vagabond’s’ street fight in Port Arthur in 1883; and, relive J. C. Bank’s frozen nightmare on Lake Superior during the Great Storm of 1893.

Life in a Thundering Bay

These stories remind us that life on the North Shore of Lake Superior has always been a gamble and an adventure, which makes for great reading.

Dr. Tania L. Saj is an anthropologist with a PhD from the University of Calgary. She is the author of numerous publications in biological and anthropological journals; this is her first book. Thunder Bay is her hometown.

Elle Andra-Warner is a journalist and author of several non-fiction books, including Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Robert Service, Hudson’s Bay Company and The Mounties. She is a long-time resident of Thunder Bay.
