Sand dunes are among the most rugged and beautiful natural features of the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior shorelines. These dunes comprise the most extensive freshwater dunes in the world, so vast that they are visible to astronauts from outer space. The coastal dunes are also incredibly rich, supporting a vast variety of plants and animals. "Borne of the Wind" describes the environmental factors necessary for dune creation in an easy-to-understand format. Each of the distinct types of dunes encountered along the Great Lakes shoreline is explained and illustrated with color photographs and line drawings. Color photographs of the plants and animals found in duneland areas complement the story of the ever-changing landscapes.
