[Update July 1, 2016: We have uploaded a 30-minute version of this conversation. Access is available below.]
Avid outdoors men, Jerry Dennis and Michael Delp have spent much of their adult lives thinking, researching and writing about Northern Michigan’s lakes, rivers and streams. Both men have worked hard to educate others about the value and significance of these incredible resources.
This short video offers excerpts from a longer discussion between these two incredible writers and Nature Change. Through conversation and short readings of their works, Jerry and Michael remind us of the emotional and cultural connections we have have in northwest lower Michigan to the waters around us.
Jerry Dennis reads a short segment of the prologue to his book, The Windward Shore published by the University of Michigan Press. Michael Delp reads the poem, The Mad Angler’s Restitution from his new book, Lying in the River’s Dark Bed: The Confluence of the Deadman and the Mad Angler published by Wayne State Press.
Please send Nature Change a message if you would like us to publish a longer version of this conversation. We would love to hear from you.
