Join author John Kotzian as he holds a a presentation and book signing about the “Sky Pilot of the Great Lakes” at the Whitefish Township Community Center, 7052 N M 123, Paradise MI 49768
Have you ever dreamed of visiting every Lighthouse and Life-Saving station on the Great Lakes?
The Reverend William H. Law did just that and more in the early days of the twentieth century. Rescued by a U.S. Life-Saving Service crew on Lake Huron in 1900, Law dedicated his life’s work to serving the men and women stationed at Light and Life-Saving stations throughout the United States.
“Sky Pilot” was sailors’ slang for a chaplain. To the men and women he served, Reverend Law was lovingly known as “The Sky Pilot of the Great Lakes.” A tale of unconquerable optimism, the story of W. H. Law’s life is as much the account of the brave men and women of the Lighthouse Service and Life-Saving Service as it is the saga of a long and rewarding life in the service of others.
John Will also be signing copies of his book at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish point on Saturday Sept. 10th from 11am to 3pm.
