Description

The most complete book ever written about the history, nature, and science of the remarkable Great Lakes. From the geological forces that formed them to the industrial atrocities that nearly destroyed them and the greatest environmental success stories of our time, the Great Lakes are portrayed in all their complexity.

The book, however, is much more than history. It is also the story of the lakes as told by biologists, fishermen, sailors, and others whom the author grew to know while traveling with them on boats and hiking with them on beaches and islands.

The book is also the personal narrative of a 6-week voyage through the lakes and beyond as a crewmember on a tall-masted schooner, and a memoir of a lifetime spent on and near the lakes. The result is a meditation on nature and our place in the world, a discussion and cautionary tale about the future of water resources and a celebration of a place that is fragile yet robust, diverse, rich in history and wildlife, often misunderstood, and worthy of our attention.
