She’s back! A new book by hiker/writer Loreen Niewenhuis is coming in June.
A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Walk is subtitled One Woman’s Trek Along the Shorelines of All Five Great Lakes. On the heels of the success of her first book about a long walk around Lake Michigan in 2009, Niewenhuis decided to take another long walk on the beach . . . a new epic trek she took in 2012 along selected portions of the lakefronts of Lakes Erie, Huron, Michigan, Superior, and Ontario.
While her earlier book (A 1,000-Mile Walk on the Beach) circumnavigated a single lake in its entirety, her new book looks especially at the ways the lakes are connected in a great flowing eco-system of freshwater.
The book also touches on a broad sweep of human history, especially The War of 1812, a conflict with many significant battles that occurred on the eastern Great Lakes.
Although her new book is not officially released until June 1, Loreen will have advance copies soon and is setting up speaking engagements now. Contact her directly if you’d like to arrange an appearance at a bookstore, library, nature center, outdoors club, literary group, book club . . . whew, so many connections for this interesting book!
She does a delightful talk with many slides and stories from her two long hikes.
