Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0916346714, Hardcover)

From the tumultuous war periods of the tranquil era of tourists' excursions, Lake Champlain has made an indelible impression on visitors. Chronicles of Lake Champlain utilizes diaries, journals, reports, and guidebooks to explain the changing epochs in the history of the lake. Beginning with Samuel De Champlain's journal of 1609 and ending with passages from Seneca Ray Stoddard's last guidebook in 1915, readers are treated to the compelling stories that shaped the history of Lake Champlain. By relying on the words of eyewitnesses, readers garner an intimate glimpse of the historic events that unfolded during the wars; later in the book they are exposed to the descriptions of long forgotten scenes of bustling communities and commercial trade along the lake.
