About this product
- DescriptionChronicling the author's 10,000-mile Great Lakes Circle Tour, this travel memoir seeks to answer a burning question: Is there a Great Lakes culture, and if so, what is it? Largely associated with the Midwest, the Great Lakes region actually has a culture that transcends the border between the United States and Canada. United by a love of encased meats, hockey, beer, swmobiling, deer hunting, and classic-rock power ballads, the folks in Detroit have more in common with citizens in Windsor, Ontario, than those in Wichita, Kansas--while Toronto residents have more in common with Chicagoans than Montreal's population. Much more than a typical armchair travel book, this humorous cultural exploration is filled with quirky people and unusual places that prove the obscure is far more interesting than the well kwn.
- Author BiographyTed McClelland has contributed to Mother Jones, Salon.com, and the Chicago Reader, where he wrote a popular column called At the Track featuring stories from the racetrack. He is currently the senior editor for Lake and writes the Cheap Bachelor feature for the Chicago Tribune.
