Centennial: Steaming Through the American Century, by Christopher Winters - $50.00 –Centennial captures the essence of life aboard the 102-year-old Great Lakes steamboat St. Marys Challenger.  This 240-page coffee table book contains over 300 images including both archival and contemporary material.  To explain the images, Winters wrote a short and cheeky narrative on the significant historic and economic impact this unique vessel and other “lakeboats” like her have had during a century of trade on the Inland Seas.  This book is the culmination of five years of boat chasing and living and its pages are filled with the author’s passion for both the Great Lakes and her boats
