From the back cover: 

"Windjammers marries the daunting field-collecting of Ivan Walton, the meticulous research of the 'landlubber' Joe Grimm, and the musical scores of Lee Murdock to produce a new perspective of Great Lakes sailor life...This is a fresh perspective of historical 'ditties' that never made Billboard's Top Ten List, yet were popular among the freshwater sailors for half a century. Windjammers brings forgotten sailor songs and melodies, so common a century ago, into perpsective and allows the reader to contemplate how national and regional topcs affected life on the Great Lakes."
