    I bought The Great Lakes Book Project from its website in November to for my mother as a Christmas gift It looked interesting so I read it before giving it to her don't tell ha and then after giving it to her promptly bought another copy for my coffee table Great Book about a Great Region everyone who has ever visited the lakes should own a copy

    As the father of two teenagers I found this book invaluable I'm sure other parents here can empathize when I say I shudder at the thought of the increasing presence of huge ships in the lives my children I certainly remember the strain I caused so long ago for my own parents when I began experimenting with huge ships The long inter continental voyages that kept my mom and dad up all night with worry Don't even get me started on the international protocols when transporting perishable cargo To think I was even younger than my kids are now huge ships are everywhere and it doesn't help that the tv and movies make huge ships seem glamorous and cool This book helped me really approach the subject of huge ships with my kids in an honest and non judgmental way Because of the insights this book provided I can sleep a little better and cope with the reality that I can't always be there to protect my kids from huge ships especially as they become adults I'm confident that my teens when confronted by a huge ship are much better prepared to make wiser decisions than I did At the very least my children certainly know that they can always come to me if they have any concerns uestions or just need my support when it comes to the topic of huge ships

    Full disclosure? My essay Highway 61 and Beyond is included in this anthology so I'm biased Check it out and let me know what you think

    I'm not a big reader but I really loved The Great Lakes Book Project It's like listening to someone tell a bunch of really good stories I also like that it was printed and published in Michigan

    Not at all what I expected As the stories went they become sweeter and sweeter memories experiences and moments of people's lives that most if not all of us who have spent time in Chicago the upper peninsula Duluth the Apostle Islands near WI etc can relate with These stories are so well written and descriptive that it takes to right back to your own memories in a sense I was pleasantly surprised Great collection of short stories and poems not one are alike either which actually made it interesting and exciting to read not knowing what experience or where in the Great Lakes the story would take us

    I think this book is amazing Although I may be a bit biasedMerged reviewEditingPublishing the Great Lakes Book Project was an unforgettable experience Working with the 25 authors I began to understand just how much growing up around The Great Lakes means to all of us The authors highlighted are truly talented and this book would make a perfect addition to any Upper Midwesterner's collection If you want to see about The Great Lakes Book Project its authors or how to purchase it please visit

    The authors with their individualistic styles all share their stories about the Great Lakes but they were chosen out of hundreds of submissions for their ability to relate feelings through vivid imagery poetic verses humorous analogies and intricate details about the cultural landscape of The Great Lakes

    This was a major surprise to find such literary gems about the various cultural dimensions of the Great Lakes I am looking forward to volume 2
