Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Written by two scientists, presents substantially more than an average visitor needs, but makes no pretense of being a scientific treatise. Handbook is actually a good term for this reference, intended for anyone who lives near the lakes or visits them for recreation, and who has beyond average curiosity about their geological and natural history, shoreline topography, weather patterns, water characteristics, reef features, fish and bird life, wetlands, and pollution status. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
