Author Jerry Dennis speaks about and signs this newly revised and updated edition about our Great Lakes on Thursday, June 6 at 6:30 PM!

The Living Great Lakes: Searching for the Heart of the Inland Sea, 20th Anniversary Ed. by Jerry Dennis

Award-winning nature author Jerry Dennis reveals the splendor and beauty of North America’s Great Lakes in this “masterwork”* history and memoir of the essential environmental and economical region shared by the United States and Canada. A Michigan native, Jerry Dennis also shares his memories of a lifetime on or near the lakes, including a six-week voyage as a crewmember on a tall-masted schooner.  This is a meditation on nature and our place in the world, a discussion and cautionary tale about the future of water resources, and a celebration of a place that is both fragile and robust, diverse, rich in history and wildlife, often misunderstood, and worthy of our attention.
