Do you love the Indiana dunes area? Have you ever wondered about the history of the Indiana dunes region? Do you want to know about what the future could have in store for the dunes? If you have answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, then you will want to take a peek at Dreams of Duneland by Kenneth J. Schoon.
Dreams of Duneland by Kenneth J. Schoon
This isn’t a book with images of the lake in all seasons and that’s it. Of course, there are plenty of those, but when it says “a pictorial history” it really means it.
Many of you may already know my love for Indiana history, and of place, but this is so much more than a history book. The history of the dunes is one of many parts of this 270 page work.
There’s also birds, amphibians, reptiles, fungus, and mammals. Did you know there are at least 46 species of mammals here? Every image is gorgeous and full color. They really help tell the story of the dunes region. It’s a stunning look at the Indiana Dunes in a way you may have never seen before.
Chances are, if you are like me, you will find yourself pleasantly surprised. It’s a place that many of us, myself included, have spent a lot of time in. Yet, this book gives us an-depth look at the dunes you will love.
