Join historian and PBS host John Gurda for a lively illustrated look at the lake and its adjacent watersheds. See how they served the community as transportation routes, recreational resources, and industrial corridors, and how they have weathered a cycle of heavy use and flagrant abuse to emerge as focal points of both celebration and concern in the twenty-first century.
