    Having been born and raised in Deep Haven and enjoying Lake Minn

    Having been born and raised in Deep Haven and enjoying Lake Minnetonka via year long activities, my interest in anything surrounding the lake and it's surroundings is high. I came upon this book by accident and of course picked it up. Ironically, the very first page I turmed to involved a picture of my grandfather's berry farm. I was hooked and headed to the check out. I have now spent many hours with the book, reliving childhood memories and stories of the lake. What a treasure!

    When I started reading this book, I didn't know I had an interest in Lake Minnetonka history, but after reading the foreward, the prologue and
    the
    epilogue, I was intrigued and ready to peruse this very interesting and enjoyable book. Pictures, photos, maps, copies of documents, information boxes not part of the text - all help make the book readable and easy to understand even for those of us who are not "history buffs." I gained a new perspective of Lake Minnetonka, and the authors of this well written book are to be commended for their thorough and extensive research. "The Big Water" is a beautiful, large coffee table book, and the only complaint I have is I couldn't hold it to read while on my treadmill.

    As someone with a lifelong interest in Lake Minnetonka history, I very much enjoyed this informative, entertaining and well-researched book. Liked the inside information about the Gilded Age at the lake and political influence of the wealthy. Great photos, maps and documents I hadn’t seen before were an extra bonus.

    After having purchased and read a dozen or so books on the history of Lake Minnetonka, I was pleased to learn the background of the stories explained in the Big Waters. It seemed well researched and well written. It is a great addition to the history of Lake Minnetonka and the surounding territory. I highly recomend it.
