“…Once I started the book, I could not put it down. Allan Casey’s love of lakes is infectious, and in many ways, it parallels my own. A long-term lover of lakes can see many of the things that professional scientists measure and quantify and can reach very similar conclusions.” --Canadian Geographic
"In prose as crystal clear as the waters of Great Slave Lake, Allan Casey invites us to take a new look at the landscape, and see all of it with fresh eyes." --Wayne Grady, author of The Great Lakes
"Lakeland is closely observed, smart, evocative, and personal. It's natural history writing at its best." --Rick Boychuk, former editor of Canadian Geographic
"Allan Casey peers deep into Canada's lakes and sees himself, a nation, and human nature reflected there. A heartfelt and compelling adventure, Lakeland rings both sweet and true." --Brian Payton, author of The Ice Passage and Shadow of the Bear
"I always wanted to write a book about lakes, and our persisten Canadian love affair with them, but I'm striking it off the list. Allan Casey is a passionate and entertaining writer, and no one could improve upon his exploration of this enigmatic subject." --Jake MacDonald, author of Grizzlyville and Houseboat Chronicles
“Casey wanted to know how other lakes across Canada are faring and to discover the real condition of Lakeland. By visiting 10 lakes across Canada and meeting with ordinary people who live and work on lakes, he gauges the quality of their lives and how the lake has changed over time…the Chapters are eminently readable and they provide a fine beginning place to appreciate lakes we may never visit but whose environmental and economic health is vital to the overall well-being of Lakeland.” --Winnipeg Free Press
"CASEY writes clearly, offering historical and scientific information, and he writes with the heart of a poet." --Chronicle Herald
