Wind in Our Favor: The Smith Story

Michael C Smith, Charles Edwin Smith

After finding the pages of a choppy transcript of the life of his Great-Grandfather Charles E. Smith, Michael Smith decided to complete and publish Charles’s story. There were several problems with this challenge. Charles had died in 1960 and his son Pat, who familiar with the transcript, had passed away in 2000. There were important questions and facets of Charles’s story that were completely unknown. The story’s publication was originally conceived as a gift to those remaining descendants of Charles Smith, and so Michael set on a course to find the answers in the context of the original words of his Great-Grandfather. In Wind in Our Favor, Charles E. Smith takes us on an illustrious journey up and down the Great Lakes of North America, through the labors and trades of the late 1800’s and 1900’s, and into the beloved sport of yachting. He tells of his extraordinary adventures with modesty and humor. The narrative is romantic, enriching, and most of all entertaining!
