Book ONE in the "1,000-Mile Great Lakes Adventure Series"
"In her walk around Lake Michigan, Loreen Niewenhuis accomplished what many of us have only daydreamed about. Her adventure is told with verve and boldness, and she is a clear-eyed observer of the lake and its beautiful and sometimes ravaged shore. This book is a welcome addition to the literature of the Great Lakes."
-Jerry Dennis, author of The Living Great Lakes and The Windward Shore

“Swooping down into various Atlanta neighborhoods in the early 21stcentury, Loreen Niewenhuis populates her first novel with a diverse cast of more than a dozen characters. Like the great filmmaker Robert Altman, Niewenhuis deftly and movingly illuminates these small, individual lives, while simultaneously creating the larger portrait of a particular time and place. Atlanta is a bold and confident debut.”
-Robin Lippincott, author of In the Meantime
