From mapmakers to moles, North Shore traces a Superior coast legacy
A decade of deep archival research and on-the-ground observation lends perspective to a new environmental history in North Shore: A Natural History of Minnesota’s Superior Coast.
An important step above your average field guide – and quite a bit heftier – North Shore delivers a manageable look at the natural connections in a northern landscape – human or wild.
Longtime North Shore resident and ecologist, Chel Anderson co-wrote the 632-page behemoth with science and environmental history writer Heidi Fischer.
“It’s a book about connections,” said Fischer. “An in-depth history of human and natural forces.”
