Read a good book lately? We want to hear about it!
One of the missions of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum is to disseminate information and understanding about Lake Champlain’s history, environment, culture and lore. In an effort to make information about the lake more accessible, we have reserved this space on our Blog for book reviews, hoping that participants will help us build a bibliography of readings related to the lake. We invite you to contribute to this project whenever you come across a book or article you believe others would find interesting or useful. By opening this forum to everyone, we hope to develop the widest most extensive listing available. More importantly, we hope that it will be easy to use for teachers, students and the public at large who are interested in learning more about the rich heritage of the Lake Champlain region. Periodically we will compile all these book reviews into topical bibliographies.
To make the listings easy to search, we ask that you use this basic format for your review:
Title: Author: Publisher: Publication Date
Summary – Begin with a brief summary of the book’s content: important events, people, places.
Response – What did you think of the book: general impression, interest level, quality of writing, surprising facts or point of view, questions raised or answered, etc.
Recommendation – who would enjoy or find this book useful?
