Dennis, Jerry

SUMMARY

From the geological forces that formed them to the indust-rial atro-cities that nearly destroyed them and the greatest en-viron-mental 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 bio-logists, 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 six-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 medit-tion 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.Dennis, Jerry is the author of 'Living Great Lakes Searching for the Heart of the Inland Seas', published 2003 under ISBN 9780312251932 and ISBN 0312251939.
