History has recorded over six-thousand shipwrecks on the Great Lakes, but there has been only one like the 1926 wreck of the “City of Bangor” in Lake Superior.

Author and former radio and television journalist Larry Jorgensen reveals in his new book “Shipwrecked and Rescued” the true story of the rescue of lost and freezing crewmen and months later the difficult rescue of the ship’s cargo of over 200 new Chrysler autos.
