In 1913, the storm known as the "White Hurricane" caused the greatest loss of life and vessels on the Great Lakes to date. The SS Henry B. Smith sank into Lake Superior without a trace and thus spent decades as a veritable Holy Grail for wreck divers. Stonehouse illuminates that terrible storm, the mysterious disappearance, the daunting search and eventual discovery of the century-lost wreck. Explore for yourself the fascinating history of the "Hurricane" and the ships that were on the lakes that fateful night.
