Tom Warren is Emeritus Professor of Education and Youth Studies at Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin. In 1970, he and his wife bought property on Lake Superior.
Discovering Lake Superior draws from his decades of observing the lake and the Western Upper Peninsula. It is a memoir rather than history, meaning that it leans heavily on Warren’s perspective and experiences. The intention is to provide one “outsider’s” point of view regarding the lake, the land, animals, shelter and solitude. The facts reveal his affection for and curiosity about the topics.
