Project Details

The project is a book of literary journalism that documents a year spent living on the shores of the Great Lakes. It provides a vivid portrait of a unique, beautiful, and threatened place that is among the greatest natural treasures of the world yet remains poorly understood by most people. In addition to illustrating the qualities that make the Great Lakes unique, the book addresses environmental challenges that have grown more urgent since publication of the author’s award-winning book, The Living Great Lakes (St. Martin’s Press, 2003). The project is finished and should be published in late 2010 or early 2011.
