Description
Occurring in depressions formed by glacial ice, and fed by groundwater rather than streams, kettle lakes are the most common type found in the American landscape, and stretch from the northern reaches of Maine to the high plains of Montana. Walden Pond is certainly the most famous example, but every kettle lake tells a story, notes geologist and environmental columnist Robert Thorson, who here gives us their collective saga—as well as crucial insight into the dangers threatening our vulnerable freshwater ecosystem.

"This book will be delightful reading for anyone who heads 'to the lake' every summer. (It belongs on the cottage bookshelf next to the frayed copy of the Peterson bird book and the local trail guide.) Thorson writes with intelligence and pleasure, and you will come away understanding your place in a new way."—Bill McKibben
