A 1,000 Mile Great Lakes Island Adventure (A 1000 MILE ADVENTURE #3) Reviews
Loreen's journey to several Great Lake islands certainly gave me some good adventure ideas. Even though I've spent most of my adult life near the shores of Lake Erie, I'd never heard of most of the spots she visited.Les Cheneaux, Manitoulin and the Thousand Islands are definitely on the list for upcoming road trips.This is part of a Great Lake trilogy and I'd like to read the other two.
I received this book as part of a Goodreads First reads promotion. I am a big fan of Loreen Niewenhuis's books regarding the Great Likes regions.n this book she explores the Islands of the Great Lakes via walking, biking, hiking and kayaking. She celebrates the uniqueness of the islands she visits and makes one want to reenact all or part of her journey.
Outstanding. As a Great Lakes emigre, I found this a trip through fond memories of summers along the Great Lakes, especially Lake Michigan. This is a must read for those who grew up there or are living there today. Must buy her other two books "A 1,000 Mile Walk on the Beach" and "A 1,000 Mile Great Lakes Walk".
Absolutely, positively a must read for anyone wanting to learn about our Great Lakes and their surrounding islands. Loreen has an easy style of writing dispersed with humor and sentiment. "A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Island Adventure" is travel, history, and geology all wrapped into one of the best books I've read. I will be sure to read her previous books. Thank you, Loreen.
Oh my, do I ever ache and I am really tired after reading about Loreen's adventures, so realistic that I felt every ache and pain in every muscle!! Loved her descriptions of all of the islands that she hiked about or kayaked around. I have learned so much about the Great Lakes region from her 3 books and I have a new appreciation of these wonderful inland lakes!!
I received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway (and I'm so glad I did!).I'm a Great Lakes girl and learned so much more about them from reading this book. Loreen tied geology, history and travel into a very entertaining and educational read. I especially enjoyed how she got involved in projects/events on some of the islands - the re-creation of the Civil War battle on Lake Erie, the Moose Watch study on Isle Royale. I must now visit some of these islands and read Loreen's previous "1000-Mile" books!
Interesting stories of her experiences on various islands of the Great Lakes. The author is a knowledgeable person not afraid to try new adventures! I will use it as a reference for future vacations. Looking forward to visiting more of these islands!
