Lake George is bustling with boaters, swimmers, fishermen and many others, enjoying its scenic, quintessentially Adirondack shores.  But the depths below hide a whole other world-one of shipwrecks and lost history. Entombed are remnants of Lake George’s important naval heritage, such as the legendary Land Tortoise radeau, which sank in 1758. Other wrecks include the steam yacht Ellide and the first famed Minne-Ha-Ha. These waters hold secrets, too, like the explanation behind the 1926 disappearance of two hunters. After years of exploration across the lake’s bottomlands, underwater archaeologist Joseph W. Zarzynski and archaeological diver Bob Benway present the most intriguing discoveries among more than two hundred known shipwreck sites. Paperback. 149 Pages. 6′ x 9′
