Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Carter deals with historical and geological beginnings; coastal dynamics; development of the shoreline; and federal, Canadian, and state regulations. The book provides information, especially on erosion and flooding, to aid property owners and those buying or building; it includes an appendix on government agencies. The wealth of information, extensive illustrations, and objective tone make this book valuable for residents, planners, developers, politicians, and conservationists concerned with Lake Erie and other large lakes. Recommended for public and academic libraries in the area. Roland Person, Southern Illinois Univ. Lib., Carbondale
