Michigan is a land of mystery, hiding hundreds of missing ships, aircraft and persons. Join author and shipwreck hunter Ross Richardson in exploring the legendary Westmoreland and other historic Lake Michigan shipwrecks. His multimedia presentation contains a video diary of shipwreck hunting and exploration, a tour of Lake Michigan’s largest lighthouse, and the amazing story of Lake Michigan’s most famous treasure ship, the passenger steamer Westmoreland, based on the Richardson’s book entitled “The Search for the Westmoreland”. Other mysteries will also be explored, including stories from the author’s latest book, “Still Missing, Rethinking the D.B. Cooper Case and other Mysterious Unsolved Disappearances”.
