Author Jerry Dennis

the streams they write about. I've even used their description of the Huron River to follow it all the way from Milford to Lake Erie.

I enjoy Dennis, as a writer, on several levels. He writes about places I'm interested in, with an intimate knowledge of their history, geology, and biology, and of the people who lived in them. The personal essays that appeared a couple of years ago in the coffee-table book Leelanau: A Portrait of Place in Photographs and Text showed that his knowledge was not only intimate but also passionate.

So I was very excited when I heard about Dennis's new book, The Living Great Lakes: Searching for the Heart of the Inland Seas. For quite a while, I have wanted a book that brought the human and natural history of this region together in an accessible way. As I suspected he would, Dennis succeeds wonderfully.
