    The Greatest Lake
    Stories from Lake Superior's North Shore
    Explore the connection between people and places on the rugged shore of Lake Superior, the world's largest freshwater lake. Conor Mihell offers a compelling image of Lake Superior's Canadian shore through colourful personality sketches, adventure stories, and environmental accounts. Admire the kitschy decor of lighthouse cottager Maureen Robertson, a 76-year-old who spends six months of the year alone on a remote island; enter the debate over a controversial aggregate quarry in Wawa, Ontario; and learn how the author's love affair with the world's largest freshwater lake began on quests for a near-mystical, glacier-dropped monolith.Mihell's stories build on Lake Superior's rich and varied history and support its critical place in Canadian culture. Since the beginning, Lake Superior has been revered for its God-like qualities of power, unpredictability, and a seemingly endless expanse of life-sustaining freshwater. The lake's rugged yet fragile nature and hardscrabble characters and outpost communities define rural northwestern Canada. Experience it for yourself in this first collection of stories by one of the region's most acclaimed journalists.
