Darby Nelson weaves a tapestry of history, science, emotion, and poetry for all who love lakes or enjoy nature writing. The book is an affectionate account documenting our species’ long relationship with lakes—their glacial origins, Thoreau and his environmental message, and the major perceptual shifts and advances in our understanding of lake ecology.
