The work of 34 Isle Royale Artists in Residence collected and presented for the first time in a beautiful coffee table book. These paintings, drawings, photographs, poems, essays, and musical compositions reflect each artist’s attempts to deal directly with solitude, simplicity, and the wild beauty of Isle Royale and Lake Superior. In their accompanying essays, the artists tell the stories of their residencies and reflect on how their experiences have reshaped them and their art. This exquisite oversize book is the winner of the National Park Service 2002 Excellence In Interpretive Media Award.
