Atlas of the Week

The Great Lakes – An Environmental Atlas and Resource Book is a very interesting resource which gives readers a comprehensive overview of the Great Lakes region. It covers both history and science, spanning from the lives of native peoples before colonization to pollution in modern day ecosystems. I found this atlas particularly interesting because its maps taught me a lot about a part of the world I didn’t know much about. I especially recommend checking out the New Directions for the Great Lakes Community section which looks towards possibilities for the future, since the Atlas was published in 1995 and we now know what actions have been taken since its release.
