In her walk, Loreen Niewenhuis accomplished what many of us have only daydreamed about. Her adventure is told with verve and boldness, and she is a clear-eyed observer of the lake and its beautiful and sometimes ravaged shore. This book is a welcome addition to the literature of the Great Lakes. --Jerry Dennis, author, The Living Great Lakes
From the Author
This is the account of my 1000-mile hike around Lake Michigan. It was quite an adventure! I love the lake and this was my experience getting to know it, to encircle it on foot, to record it in my muscles and bones.
The model for my book was Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods
, so if you enjoyed that read, you'll love A 1000-Mile Walk on the Beach.
I hope you learn more about the Great Lakes as you read the book. I certainly learned a lot while researching and writing the book as well as along the hike itself. And I hope it inspires you to take on an adventure of your own.
All the best to you!-Loreen Niewenhuis
