The Living Great Lakes: Searching for the Heart of the Inland Seas by Jerry Dennis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jerry Dennis is one of the best 'Great Lakes Writers.' His work has inspired me, and this account of his journey by boat through four of the Great Lakes all the way to the Atlantic Ocean is a great read.
I'm not much of a boater, but I do enjoy learning about the lakes and this book explores many aspects of the lakes.
Dennis also tells of his time as a crew hand on a sailboat in the Chicago to Mackinac Island race. I've been in Chicago for the start of this event when the lake is filled with sails. It was fascinating to be along for the ride by reading this book.
