Women lighthouse keepers, North American Indians, fur traders, cooks on sailing vessels, missionaries, and fearless travelers all wrote of their lives on the Great Lakes. Their narratives, which span the centuries from 1789 to the present, are now collected in this anthology for the first time. Some writers are well known. Others left their quiet testimonies in letters, log books, and diaries that have never before been published. Beginning with Indian myths and stories, and continuing through writings by women pioneers, travelers, and working women, more than three dozen selections of autobiography, fiction, newspaper acounts, and poetry chronicle what it has meant to live on the lakes from childhood to old age.

Honored as one of "50 Essential Michigan History Books."
