Interwoven with legends and lore, this story chronicles one man's adventure on Lake Superior, one of the world’s most dangerous bodies of water.


“An enjoyable ramble.” —Booklist

“Bree goes a little beyond the usual sailing descriptions and discusses the lake's fragile ecology and the threat to it posed by human activities . . . This offers more than the usual book on sailing.” —Library Journal

“In addition to its tremendous local interest, this will appeal to readers interested in maritime history as well as to yachting enthusiasts.” —Publishers Weekly

"In a Bookmark column by editor Laurie Hertzel, "Readers Suggest Up North books," the Marlin Bree book In the Teeth of the Northeaster was cited as a recommended title for readers. Quote: 'The opening pages about departing from Silver Bay on a beautiful day in a sailboat educated me more about Lake Superior weather than any TV show could have.'" —Minneapolis Star Tribune
