Many books on scuba diving have been published over the course of time, almost since the beginning of the scuba era. The Scuba News Canada will post these “nostalgia” books considered a “blast from the past” on a regular basis, and we want you, our readers, to make suggestions of “older nostalgia diving books” you have enjoyed, or believe our readers will. We will publish it and add your social media/website link to the article if you send us the proposal. Contact us.

On October 31, 1780, when en route from Fort Niagara to Oswego, the Ontario sank in a raging storm. The ship sank with about 120 men on board. The sinking of the Ontario was kept secret for several years in order to conceal the naval disaster. The bodies of six people thought to have been on board the ship did not wash up on the lakeshore near Wilson, New York until the following spring. No other victims ever found.

Legend of the Lake was published in 2009.
