Cheboygan Twin Lakes: Community in the Woods
About the Book
This book explores the complex physical, historical, and social factors that have allowed a small kettle lake in northeastern Michigan to remain ecologically and environmentally sound, a gem lake. The book investigates these within the context of local/regional, state, and national history. It also tells a story of how and why a community of residents has been formed in the forest and has functioned as an effective steward of its natural resources.
