The following book was used heavily by Myia for her portion of the research. The book concisely lays out not only the history, but also the timeline of the Fitzgerald’s final voyage, and gives a quick summary of follow-up expeditions and outcomes of the investigation into the sinking of the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald. The information provided by the book was then supplemented and reinforced by the online sources, and documentaries.
