really liked it

Non-fiction journalism about the history of The Great Lakes and the invasive and native species within. I'm neither a fisherman nor a wildlife biologist, and I found this book to be engaging -- page-turning, in fact -- very accessibly written.

I found myself hating humans, admiring nature, and thinking about the Great Lakes almost like a part of the body. If the Great Lakes have an infection, it affects the rest of our country.

Again, I am reminded of the importance of maintaining healthy waterways and the urgency of doing so.

The food chain in the wild is anything but clear-cut and makes for a fascinating read.

Bottom line: If you have any tolerance for reading non-fiction, this is worth reading. I recommend it even more strongly if you rarely have thought about our waterways.
