GLIN==> New book on Lake Erie Circle Tour



LAKE ERIE JOURNAL: GUIDE TO THE OFFICIAL LAKE ERIE CIRCLE TOUR. By Scott
Carpenter. Big River Press. 265 pages. $14.95
In the preface of this comprehensive travel guide, Toledo freelance writer
Scott Carpenter reflects on how he was drawn to Lake Erie during his youth:
One moment he was playing in waves crashing over a Metzger Marsh pier; the
next he was fishing for catfish from a rocky shoreline, taking a boat out in
search of perch, or wading waist-deep into the muddy Maumee River for white
bass and walleye. Many motorists are familiar with the green signs used to
designate the Circle Tour's special driving route in Ohio, Michigan,
Ontario, New York, and Pennsylvania. Few probably have actually traveled the
whole thing. Even fewer are as familiar as Carpenter with this region's
flavor, character, heritage, and culture.
