Specially edited, updated, revised and rewritten by the author, and for the first time complete in one volume, Great Lakes Suite includes A Trip Around Lake Ontario, first published in 1988, as well as A Trip Around Lake Erie and A Trip Around Lake Huron, both of which were first published in 1980. These books have come alive in a remarkable way and have made the whole much more than merely the sum of its parts. They have become funnier, sadder, more inter-connected, more spiritual, more sure of themselves. They sparkle from beginning to end with a new depth and resonance. They represent a time that is no more, an idyllic time (so it seems now) before the differences between Canada and the U.S. became so small as to be a joke. The years since they first appeared have been kind to these books and McFadden’s extensive reworking of the texts has given them a heightened sheen.
