Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ashworth (Encyclopedia of Environmental Studies) has toured the Great Lakes twice, once in 1983 with a friend and then again in 1998 with his wife. This book is an account of his travels through the region and a discussion of its geology, geography, hydrology, history, and culture. To put the lakes in proper context and thereby understand the importance of this thoroughly researched account, it helps to understand that the lakes form the largest freshwater system on the planet. They sprawl over nearly 100,000 square miles; their 4000 miles of coastline exceed that of the United States on the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Describing all the changes he has seen in the environment and the area's increasing urbanization in the past 15 years, Ashworth relates the numerous conversations he had with locals and illustrates his study with black-and-white photographs. Also included is a 200-source bibliography. Recommended for all libraries in the Great Lakes states and for large public and academic libraries in the rest of the country.--Thomas K. Fry, Univ. of Denver Lib. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
