Book Review: Going Full Circle

Join husband-wife team Mike Link and Kate Crowley as they hike around the world’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Superior. The couple adds adventure memoir author to their already numerous list of titles such as, naturalists, travel writers and parents & grandparents.  Their recounting of the five-month's long hike through Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Ontario is compiled in this award-winning, recent addition to the Water Library's collection, Going Full Circle: A 1,555-mile walk around the World's Largest Lake. Their walk is filled with personal observations, scientific information, and passages that are certain to connect readers to the awe and beauty of the Great Lakes region.  There is also an abundance of information available of their website: which they use to continue their advocacy of fresh water resource issues.

Next up for this adventurous couple is a 4,500-mile trip by bicycle and boat along the Mississippi River to the Gulf.
