Lakefront property owners the world over are convinced they sit on the shore of the world's greatest lake. John Fahey set out to prove it.
After visits to four continents, hours of research, numerous interviews, and countless baffled looks from his friends and family, John finally had a definitive answer for everyone who's ever wondered where the world's greatest lake resides.
His travels took their toll more than once on his well-being (leeches, anyone?). Through paragliding accidents, grizzly encounters, and hard lessons in wilderness preparation, John survived with all limbs and most of his sense intact.
In this rich travel memoir, you'll learn about lake formation processes, Secchi disks, regional history, and how to terrify family members with fake bats on a stick. Let John's lighthearted, intelligent voice guide you along this extraordinary adventure around the globe as he compares his list of top competitors and declares the winner of the title: Greatest Lake in the World.For more information about the author, visit his website at: greatestlakeintheworld.com
