A Swallow Press Book

Dune Country
A Hiker’s Guide to the Indiana Dunes

By Glenda Daniel

One of our nation’s newest parks stretches along Lake Michigan across 14 miles of windswept beach between Gary and Michigan City in Northern Indiana. Dune Country explains for the first time in terms everyone can understand why the plant and animal succession and the rich variety of natural habitats there are so unique. Now Daniel has added a section on the geology of the area so that hikers will be able to identify formations that can be seen on a field trip.

In this revised edition, Daniel also includes guides to the 15 miles of new trails added to the National Lake Shore, which cover a variety of terrains—the dunes along the lake and inland along rivers, old dunes and marshlands. This new edition now has more than 75 drawings as well as maps and guides to over 45 miles of hiking trails in both the National Lake Shore and Indiana Dunes State Park.

Glenda Daniel is a Chicago–based writer and editor specializing in environmental, natural history, and recreation subjects. In addition to Dune Country, she has co–authored, with her husband Jerry Sullivan, a series of hiking guides to the Midwest and Southern Mountains and the Sierra Club Naturalist’s Guide to the North Woods. She currently edits The Great Lakes Reporter, a bimonthly journal, for The Center for the Great Lakes.   More info →

Walking the Steps of Cincinnati
By Mary Anna DuSablon

During the nineteenth century, various basin and hillside neighborhoods in Cincinnati were linked by over thirty miles of steps--along cliffs with extraordinary panoramic views and through ravines of stunning beauty. Visitors who marvel at Cincinnati's “seven” hills never realize that they can actually be conquered on foot.
