North Shore: A Natural History of Minnesota’s Superior Coast

$ 39.95

The environmental history of Minnesota’s spectacular North Shore

In North Shore Chel Anderson and Adelheid Fischer offer a comprehensive environmental history of one of Minnesota’s most beloved places. Compelling and accessible, the book will provide readers with a science-based knowledge of the Minnesota North Shore watershed so that together we can write a new, hopeful chapter for its inhabitants, both human and wild.

In North Shore, lovers of that sacred strip of scree and cold water finally have a definitive natural history. But they also have a meticulous and wondrous book that will entertain as much as educate, that demystifies even as it allows for the magical moments the North Shore is famous for inspiring. I’ve never felt so in tune with my favorite place as I did turning the last page of this book, and seldom have I felt so thankful.
