The Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan
The Death and Life of the Great Lakes takes readers on a journey, looking through the history and future of the Great Lakes. Egan uses his years as a Great Lakes reporter to weave together an educational and riveting story about what is happening in the waters we call home. The book is highly accessible to people of any background, and a must for those who want to protect the waters that are near and dear to us.
The Wintering by Peter Geye
This novel is a love story that spans sixty years, generations worth of feuds, and secrets. The story is woven together with the stories of father and son, and the memories created in the harsh winter of Minnesota, traveling the waters of the area. The story is as much man vs nature as it is a story of love, revenge, and the human condition.
