Shipwrecked! is a stirring coming-of-age drama set during a fierce winter storm on Lake Huron in 1893. Twelve-year-old Aaron Buchanan, sailing with his parents on their small schooner loaded with Christmas trees from Sault Ste. Marie, is tested in ways he never dreamed possible when a ferocious gale suddenly materializes in Thunder Bay's infamous "Shipwreck Alley."
Inspired by the desperate circumstances, he finds the sailing skills, bravery and physical strength to help effect the daring rescue of his family. This original drama, written by long-time Wild Swan playwright Jeff Duncan, is based on historical accounts of the period and provides older students with a fine opportunity to explore the Great Lakes and Michigan's history, geography, music and maritime heritage.
