This full color 238-page hardcover book was compiled over a period of nearly twenty-five years by award-winning Great Lakes photojournalist Chris Winters – himself an early Lake Schooner volunteer – and features an engaging memoir penned by Frank Steeves, who led the project, first as its chairman, and later as co-chairman with philanthropist Michael Cudahy, from its inception in 1989 through 2008, when all aspects of the new Discovery World were fully operational.

Building the lake schooner Denis Sullivan, and the rebirth of Discovery World museum on Milwaukee’s Municipal Pier remains one of the most remarkable stories of commitment, perseverance, and philanthropy in the history of U.S. not-for-profit organizations.
