About the Book

The scene out your passenger side window changes by the hour as you trace the shore clockwise around Lake Erie.

From a country highway in southern Ontario, Lake Erie is a thin blue ribbon bordering vast fields of red tomatoes.

In Ohio and New York, the lake is a backdrop for sprawling cityscapes of skyscrapers, smokestacks and arenas.

Sunbathers bask on beaches built by a glacier in Erie, Pennsylvania. Rare plants and animals take refuge in a manmade marsh near Monroe, Michigan.

Lake Erie Journal is the most complete guide available to the hundreds of attractions located along the Circle Tour. Author Scott Carpenter captures the character of the communities that share the shore -- from Point Pelee to Presque Isle, Long Point to Cedar Point and all points in between.
