Canadian Tankers of the Great Lakes - Volume 4 has been completed by Skip Gillham. This is the final book in his four-part series on the topic. While earlier publications have focused on the tankers of Imperial Oil, Branch Lines and Socanav, and the Hall Corporation, the final installment covers the ships and shipping companies that did not fall under the other fleets.
Volume 4 contains a brief historic sketch of the companies that owned tankers and an illustrated history of their ships, along with a comprehensive index for the series. There are 103 black and white photos with full color covers in the 82 page book.
