"With his gentle, exquisite and sometimes playful prose, Allan Casey conveys a powerful message about the value of Canada's lakes, introduces us to the people who cherish them, and offers both a celebration of and lament for these precious and oft-abused natural treasures." -- Governor General's Award jury
"Once I started the book, I could not put it down. Allan Casey's love of lakes is infectious." -- Canadian Geographic
In this wry, sensual, and entertaining journey into the greatest lake country on earth, Allan Casey encounters cottagers, boat captains, marathon swimmers, Aboriginal fishery managers, hermits, and tourists. Through his sharply drawn characters, lively storytelling, and intimate evocation of wild beauty, he celebrates the rich culture and unsung splendor of Canada's lakeland. Decrying reckless development in a paradise often taken for granted, Casey tempers evangelical outrage with deep compassion. Often humorous, always thought-provoking, Lakeland should find a place in every lakeside cottage, in the corner of every tent.
Nominated for the Saskatchewan Book Award and the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction, Lakeland was the recipient of the prestigious Governor General's Award for Non-Fiction in 2010.
