Journey along the Wisconsin shores of Lake Michigan through the eloquent words of Ted Rulseh.
In this love letter disguised as an anthology, author Ted Rulseh expresses his deep affinity with that singular body of water we call Lake Michigan. In a collection of 107 seasonally grouped essays that first appeared in his regular column in the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter, his easy prose is at once rich and satisfyingly restrained. He allows the life of the lake, his hometown of Two Rivers, and adjoining lakeshore communities speak for themselves with quiet compelling results.
A pleasing chronicle of small-town life that manages to hang on amid the relentless march of time and technology, this book is also a keenly observant naturalist's journal. Let it take you away for a while to a place where gulls wheel above steel-gray waves, and dune walkers pull their jackets a little tighter.
