In 2009, Loreen Niewenhuis walked completely around Lake Michigan. This audiobook chronicles that journey, a 1,000-mile walk around the world's fifth-largest lake. The audiobook explores both the geology of the lake and the measure of a person - a woman, married, mother of two sons (who joined her for portions of the walk). But most of the walk was done solo, an adventure in discovery of self and place.
Niewenhuis conveys a sense of the magnitude of the lake she loves, a place so elemental to the four Midwestern states that form its shores. From a ground-level perspective, the audiobook explores the natural and human history of Lake Michigan…and raises important questions about preserving our wild places and protecting fragile ecosystems on which we all depend.

This is my favorite of all the books I have listened to. Every Michigander should listen to this book, along with everyone else who lives around the Lake.
