This stirring coming-of-age drama is set during a fierce winter storm on Lake Huron in 1893. Inspired by the desperate circumstances in Thunder Bay’s infamous “Shipwreck Alley,” Aaron Buchanan finds the sailing skills, bravery, and physical strength to help achieve the daring rescue of his family. This original drama, written by long-time Wild Swan playwright Jeff Duncan, is based on historical accounts of the period and provides students with a valuable opportunity to explore the Great Lakes and Michigan’s history, geography, music, and maritime heritage.
