A great gift for the person who is new to Sleeping Bear:

“The book is a fine memento for your visit to the National Lakeshore and makes a better guide for planning a visit. You will arrive with a better appreciation for “The Most Beautiful Place in America” and it will single-out not-to-be-missed points of interest and spots of breathtaking beauty.”

                                                                                  – Tom Powers, Michigan in Books Review

A great gift for the person who has known Sleeping Bear for years:

“I have been living in the grasp of the Sleeping Bear dunes all my life, and I didn’t know half the information packed in this guidebook. Did I find this book valuable? Yes. Engrossing? Yes. Beautiful? Yes. Full of history and fact? Yes!”

– Bob Sutherland, President, Cherry Republic

A great gift for the person with a home in Sleeping Bear:

“This is a book to enjoy reading by the fireplace, leaving out on the coffee table for guests, or using as a source for unforgettable bedtime stories.”

-Colleen Wares, Newstalk 580, WCTM

A great gift for the student of the Sleeping Bear:

“The latest book, The Life of the Sleeping Bear, is by far the most complete on the subject. It locates and explains the unique features of the dunes and places them in the context of their rich social, cultural, environmental, ecological, geologic, and recreational history. No book has attempted this broad range and synopses of information, and it stands on the shoulders of all that have preceded it.”

-Barbara Siepker, Leelanau County historian, author, and publisher

And a great gift for the person just looking for a good read:

“I love this book. It has something for everyone, the historian, the environmentalist, the traveler, the photographer, and perhaps most of all, the person who has lived or visited here almost forever and never realized the true stories of The Life of the Sleeping Bear.”

-Barbara Reed, Owner, The Bookstore, Frankfort, Michigan
