At the Lake: A Memoir (Paperback)
One year when asked around the campfire what their favorite vacation memories were, Jim Landwehr's kids replied, "trips to the cabin." In At the Lake, stories of fishing and kayaking, a single mother and growing teenagers, and parents wanting what's best for their children weave a larger tale of the cabin experience in the Upper Midwest. Despite the changing settings and cast of characters, the principles of rest, relaxation, and renewal remain central to three generations of a Midwestern family. With fifteen rich personal histories, Landwehr delivers a memoir filled with humor, warmth, and reverence for life up North.
