"Immortalized in words and song, the shores of Lake Superior rustle with legends of unlikely heroes, stories of quiet sorrow, and unmatchedfeats of bravery and adventure. From the earliest European records to the ghostly anecdotes of the men lost in her freezing waters, Peter Unwin records the stories of the great Superior and the people determined to make it their home. In short, cultivating chapters, Unwin lays out the history of the lake and its lands, illuminating the stories of the copper-stained greed of men who sought the Ontonagon Boulder, the strangling dread of Mishipizheu, the maddening determination of voyageurs, and the hollow ache of loss onthe greatest of inland seas. All the ferociousness the lake embodies is la id out here, filled with extraordinary facts, humorous anecdotes, and an understanding of the people who have chosen to live along its shores. In simple, witty language that engages and entertains, Peter Unwin brings Lake Superior to life like no other writer has, delivering in vibrant prose the history of the Wolf’s Head." - from the back cover.
