A fascinating book about the history of the English Lake District through the stories of artists, poets, writers, and philosophers that have visited or lived here. The book is very readable and informative, and the analysis of the significance of each these people to the history of the area, and the greater ramifications of the area and people /5.

        The Great Lakes: The Natural History of a Changing Region, by Wayne Grady, Canadian science writer Wayne Grady has written a great book about the Great Lakes. I do not read much science, but this book taught me a lot while giving me lots of joy. I’d recommend it to anyone planning to spend some time in or around the Great Lakes/5. Henderson describes how the lakes were formed billions of years ago and presents historical information regarding early explorers and Indian tribes of the region. She includes a brief discussion of the kinds of ships that once sailed and those currently sailing the area, along with a description of the canals and locks built to connect the lakes.5/5(3).
