About this title


Book by Berton, Pierre

From Library Journal:

Few natural resources affect the lives of so many Americans and Canadians as do the Great Lakes. These immense bodies of fresh water have shaped the political, commercial, geographical, and cultural history of the two nations and today more than 35 million people live in areas directly affected by the five lakes. Through the use of outstanding photography and a narrative style that brings history to life, Canadian author Berton has produced both a definitive history of the Great Lakes as well as a highly personal account of his love for this region. His discussions of the various people who sought to tame the Lakes?missionaries, voyageurs, fur trappers, loggers, miners?make for fascinating reading. Berton's accounts of shipwrecks and storms on the lakes are vivid, while his discussions of the political storms brewing in lakeside cities such as Chicago and Toronto are insightful and challenging. The importance of the Great Lakes, the need for research materials on them, and the pure pleasure of reading this book make it a valuable addition to all American and Canadian libraries.?Joseph L. Carlson, Vandenberg Air Force Base Lib., Cal.
