Publisher's Summary

In the final book in her Great Lakes Adventure trilogy, Loreen Niewenhuis launches off the shoreline to explore the islands of the Great Lakes Basin.

From hiking the rugged wilderness of Isle Royale in Lake Superior to strolling the metropolis on Montreal Island in the St. Lawrence River, Niewenhuis explores key islands in each of the five Great Lakes and their connecting waterways.

Biking, hiking, and kayaking, she searches for the fascinating differences and uniting themes of the water-edged islands found throughout this vast freshwater network - the connected ecology of lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario.

Together, these Great Lakes and their island outposts provide a vital source of water, a canvas for human culture, and a unique haven for diverse plant and animal species, some of which are endangered.

This book is a celebration of place, a warm and friendly invitation to see these beloved inland seas with fresh eyes.
