Ownership and Productivity of Marine Fishery Resources - An Essay on the Resolution of Conflict in the Use of the Ocean Pastures (pre-owned)
ISBN 978-0-939923-05-2 by Elmer A. Keen At a time when the health and future viability of the world's oceans is becoming a subject of growing social, political and ecological concern, Elmer A. Keen has offered a timely and thought provoking analysis of the present use of the marine fishery resources.

Sweetwater Sea Saga (pre-owned)
ISBN 978-0-939923-18-2 by Virginia M. Soetebier A personal account of forty years of sailing upon Lake Superior, this small volume develops in the reader a rich appreciation of the surrounding land, history and people of the "unsalted sea."

Prehistoric peoples pit Isle Royale as they mine native copper; Ojibway campfires flicker in the woods; French voyageurs steal past on their way to fur trading posts. But there are also luxury yachts riding anchor in safe harbors, ore boats looming out of the fog, fierce storms and tragic shipwrecks. All contribute to the lore of the great lake and make this boo...
