All About the Great Lakes Book


What do the ice ages, the Anishinaabe people, "New France," and freshwater shipwrecks and pirates all have in common? The Great Lakes!

The chain of lakes, what mostly runs along the U.S.-Canadian border, includes Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario. Read about the fascinating Petoskey stones, pieces of fossilized coral formed in a prehistoric sea. Join pirate captain "Roaring" Dan Seavey as he tricks ships into crashing on rocks, so he can steal their cargo. Follow the Ojibwe on their Seven Fires Migration that ends when they find manoomin (wild rice) near what is now Madeline Island.
