From the arrival of the first steamship to Lake Michigan in 1821 through the turbulent booms and busts of more than 130 years, passenger steamers of this bygone era provided an essential link for immigrants, excursionists, businesspeople and leisure travelers. On offer were dining, dancing, day trips and luxurious shipboard settings, but mishaps like storms, fires and shipwrecks were a persistent danger to passengers and crew alike. Through fascinating tales and splendid images, Lost Passenger Steamships of Lake Michigan presents the romantic and sometimes dangerous story of a vanished industry that once connected communities all long Lake Michigan's shores.

After the Civil War in the 1860s, veterans came to Benzie County and settled the farmlands, lumber companies began to harvest the timber, and railroads soon crisscrossed the landscape. Villages with churches and schools such as Nessen City and Aral came to life. Mill owners and workers and their families built company towns like Carter Siding, Averytown, and Watervale. When the lumber died out, these towns virtually disappeared, and the largest towns, such as Thompsonville and Honor, were reduced in size and population. But by then, the Ann Arbor and Pere Marquette railroads were bringing tourists to the county, and entrepreneurs turned mill towns, farmland, and lakefront into Worden's and Thompson's Resorts on Platte Lake and Robinson's and Pautz's Resorts on Crystal Lake. Today, they exist only in local lore, along with the mill towns and lumber camps that preceded them and the railroads, ships, and ferries that once transported Benzie County's people and merchandise.
