Great Lakes

Water, wilderness, and wildlife

The Great Lakes stamp a fiercely untamable nature into the northeastern U.S. As the largest group of freshwater lakes on earth, this “inland sea” of deep waters and far horizons shapes the region’s weather, and therefore its environment, people, wildlife—really, every aspect of its physical and cultural texture. About 35,000 islands lay scattered across the five Great Lakes. The second largest island is Isle Royale, which lies in the largest lake, Superior. Let us introduce you to the rugged, wooded, remote, and fascinating world of Isle Royale, once a hunting ground of the Ojibwe, who called it Minong, “The Good Place,” and now the setting for one of our nation’s most unusual national parks and unfolding ecological drama.
