Overview

A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Walk: One Woman's Trek Along the Shorelines of All Five Great Lakes by Loreen Niewenhuis

This book chronicles Loreen Niewenhuis's latest adventure: a 1,000-mile walk along the shorelines of all five Great Lakes. The book takes the reader on a ground-level walk through the beauty, the history, and the tender ecology of Lakes Erie, Huron, Michigan, Superior, and Ontario. A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Walk also leads us on an exploration of self, as the author sets out on foot to explore a region. Like her earlier book of a long trek around Lake Michigan, this new grand hike on the shores of five magnificent bodies of freshwater explores the natural and human history of the Great Lakes … and raises important questions about preserving our wild places and protecting fragile ecosystems on which we all depend.
