The Living Great Lakes is the most complete book ever written about the history, nature, and science of these remarkable lakes at the heart of North America. From the geological forces that formed them to the industrial atrocities that nearly destroyed them, to the greatest environmental success stories of our time, the lakes are portrayed in all their complexity. The book, however, is much more than just history. It is also the story of the lakes as told by biologists, fishermen, sailors, and others whom Jerry Dennis grew to know while traveling with them on boats and hiking with them on beaches and islands.

Since I live in Chicago, I was drawn to this title so I would learn more about the Great Lakes which I have so enjoyed, especially Lake Michigan. However, knowledge of these bodies of water should be required reading! The author takes you on a voyage through the lakes in current day and past. Very well done!

A must-read for anyone in the Great Lakes region
The story captures the spirit of living in the Great Lakes region through a variety of tales. Some of these consist of a boat rides across the Great Lakes and other disasters in the history of the region over the many centuries. It is a perfect read for anybody who lives in the Great Lakes region or those interested in helping maintain the Great Lakes.
