The towering sand dunes along Lake Michigan not far from Chicago are one of the most unexpected natural features of Indiana. Dreams of Duneland is a beautifully illustrated introduction to the Dunes region, its history, and future prospects. This area of shifting sands is also a place of savanna, wetland, prairie, and forest that is home to a wide diversity of plant and animal species. The preserved area of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore sits by residential communities, businesses, and cultural attractions, evidence of a long history of competition for the land among farmers, fur traders, industrialists, conservationists, and urban and recreational planners. With more than 400 stunning images, the book brings to life the remarkable story of this extraordinary place.

Editorial Reviews

"I share Ken Schoon's feelings that the dunes and the dunes parks are under-appreciated. Two previous books on the dunes are out of print and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016." -Dale Endquist, National Park Service, Manager, Indiana Dunes National Shoreline
