Shaped by glaciers, the Great Lakes—Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario—are one of the natural wonders of the world. The lakes and the lands around them have been home to diverse Native American nations, explorers, trappers, loggers, and farmers as well as visitors who enjoy outdoor sports and recreation in a region known for cool summers, colorful autumns, and snowy winters.
This award-winning literary field guide for kids (ages 9 and up) and families uses stories, poems, and essays to depict the natural heritage of the Great Lakes, from Buffalo to the Boundary Waters. Describing canoe trips, fishing expeditions, and encounters with moose, loons, and bears, the book features such well-known writers as Minnesota’s Sigurd Olson, Illinois’ Sandra Cisneros, Indiana’s Edwin Way Teale and Gene Stratton-Porter, and Ontario’s Margaret Atwood. The book includes descriptions of the region’s distinctive habitats and a list of natural areas readers can visit.
