Lake Superior started the book. 
I wanted to write about the lake more than anything—how it shapes the land, the weather, the people who live here. 
A sleety April day started the book, too—a lonesome quiet lovely day that made me  yearn to somehow describe my
beloved north, Lake Superior, all of it. See photos of Lake Superior below:
