Rescue From Grampa Woo is an exciting tale of fear and heroism on Lake Superior. It tells of the rescue of two American men from a propellerless cruise ship as it drifts out to sea in hurricane-force winds. Three ships, two Canadian, one American, fight to save it. How successful were they? What kind of people would take these risks for others? What is it about Lake Superior that inspires such awe?

Rescue From Grampa Woo is a mariner’s story, a sea story, a gripping account of adventure, risk and dedication. It culminated in the awarding of three Governor General’s Medals of Bravery.

"I know when not to push the lake."

- Captain Gerry Dawson

Rescue From Grampa Woo is another contribution by Joan Skelton to the gathering lore of the Great Lakes. Rightfully, she has been included in The Encyclopedia of Literature of the Seas and Great Lakes, published by the University of Minnesota Press, and in The Women's Great Lakes Reader.

The author is an expatriate Torontonian who has adopted the near North as her home. In fact, when she first saw Lake Superior, she felt she had come home.

Other works by Joan Skelton include: Interlude: The Story of Elliot Lake (1977) and The Survivor of the Edmund Fitzgerald (1985).
