Ever since Niewenhuis hiked the entire perimeter of Lake Michigan in 2009 (and wrote her popular 2011 book, A 1,000-Mile Walk on the Beach), people have asked her about her favorite stretches of the Lake Michigan lakeshore to hike . . . especially options less than 1,000 miles long!
Released just in time for the start of summer, Best Lake Michigan Hikes: 10 Favorite Lake Michigan Hikes on the Beachselects the author’s favorite stretches of Lake Michigan shoreline for possible hikes, based on her 2009 epic hike.
Trails included range from very short up to long hikes of 15 miles or more and offer inspirational ideas for outings that celebrate wonderful and scenic natural resources of the area. Some even connect with state parks, popular and off the beaten path, in Wisconsin and Michigan.
She also includes notes on local attractions, museums, and independent bookstores, with an appendix noting major organizations like the Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, and Alliance for the Great Lakes that are working to preserve and protect Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes environment.
Niewenhuis writes short stories and essays, with her work published in literary journals. This year she is wrapping up a third 1,000-mile walk, focusing on exploring Great Lakes islands, with a book due out in 2015. She does many talks for book clubs, public libraries, and environmental groups; her website is www.LakeTrek.com.
The eBook is published by Crispin Books, an imprint of Great Lakes Literary, an independent book publisher of quality nonfiction and fiction, based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
