    One thought on “Ship Captain's Daughter: Growing Up on the Great Lakes”

    1. Ann Lewis, through this book, has opened my eyes to the shipping industry of the Great Lakes, especially in Lake Superior. Since I love new experiences through reading, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lewis's work. She tells the story of her father, a dedicated sea man who became a ship's captain in due time. It's interesting to have her point of view, so I got a glimpse of not only life on the ship but also the life of the captain's family on land. I particularly enjoyed reading her personal exper [...]

    2. It's a collection of incidents about Ann Lewis' father's captain life based on recollections from her childhood and the photos she has from that era. The anecdotes do not necessarily have a point, they're just memories. They're all matter of fact recollections, there's no agenda here other than to recount this lifestyle that is from a bygone era. There's no story arc other than her early memories to her final relevant ones. It's just ordinary life with no flashes or surprises. Probably interesti [...]

    3. Ship Captain's Daughter is a very short autobiographical narrative about growing up in the Twin Ports (Duluth/Superior) as the daughter of a Great Lakes ore ship captain. The prose reads like a young girl's diary, touching on both highlights and the more mundane aspects of this family's unique seasonal scheduled. Not a page-turner, but of interest to me especially because of the locale, and because I know people working in the Great Lakes shipping industry.

    4. Interesting bookd what a different life from us "landlubbers"but hard on families.I did wonder how her father put the tinsel on the Christmas tree and THEN the ornaments, having done this for years just the opposite!

    5. This is a great light read. It is fun reading a well rounded view of the lives of sailors and their families on Lake Superior. I am glad I read this before the Chippewa Valley Book Festival next month!
