"An informative read and a reminder to care for nature's great gifts to our region." —Duluth News Tribune

"With a deft touch Leaf combines philosophy and life experiences with Lake Superior’s south shore and the surrounding culture." —Great Lakes Now

"Sue Leaf's Impermanence is a fascinating combination of personal memoir, natural history, and cultural history. She writes beautifully about Lake Superior's South Shore and its forests, wetlands, and peoples. Her reflections on her family cabin on Lake Superior, and her grief about its potential loss from bluff erosion due to climate change, are particularly evocative. Anyone who loves Lake Superior will find this book rewarding."—Nancy Langston, author of Sustaining Lake Superior: An Extraordinary Lake in a Changing World and Climate Ghosts: Migratory Species in the Anthropocene

"Sue Leaf has given us a gift: a vivid and meticulously researched portrait of one of the most remarkable freshwater coasts in the world. I thought I knew the place well, but I learned something new and fascinating on nearly every page."—Jerry Dennis, author of The Living Great Lakes: Searching for the Heart of the Inland Seas and The Windward Shore: A Winter on the Great Lakes
