He had few contemporaries and gained his reputation as one who could sail Madeline in any storm. And Madeline, the fastest two-master schooner on the Big Lake, was known as The Queen and the pride of the American flag.In the mid-19th Century, few men knew life aboard an upper lakes schooner.

But all mariners knew sailing le Lac Superieur was dangerous and sometimes fatal. Especially in November when nor’easter winds spit-out rouge waves.Greatly beloved by crewmen, Captain Perriouś pampered Madeline like his truelove. He claimed she required nine worthy suitors who knew how-to sail.He admonished his crew repeatedly: “Treat Madeline as your best girl- and come hell or high water her fain will be to protect you in a freshwater fury.”Led by the Light of the Maeonian Star pays tribute to two legendary upper lakes vessels—the ss Edmund Fitzgerald and Madeline—and their crews, whose legacies are forever entombed in the Big Lake.A glossary of nautical terms is featured and includes illustrations of Madeline’s deck and sail plan.
