Here's a review from a listener:
What made the experience of listening to A 1000-Mile Walk on the Beach the most enjoyable?
I loved how the author would divert from the retelling of the journey to give facts about the history of each area, environmental concerns, and other information. It was done masterfully so as to not take away from the flow of the book. The narration was also wonderfully done.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved hearing about the history and the places. I also liked hearing about the current concerns due to industry's footprint in the area.
What about Loreen Niewenhuis’s performance did you like?
Her voice is soothing, and holds your interest. So much so that my four-year-old son insists on listening to the "lake book" at bedtime. It is hard to find a narrator that I enjoy and Loreen did a wonderful job narrating her own book. The only disappointment I have is that the rest of her Great Lakes treks are not available on Audible yet.
Any additional comments?
Read this book! I enjoyed it, and was impressed so much by Loreen's knowledge about environmental concerns and history in each area that I find myself hoping to steal away to one of her lectures next time we are visiting family in Michigan!
