Ask your community for love stories... and a book like this may happen to you! LOVE STORIES OF THE BAY was written by people who feel a connection to Lake Superior – specifically Wisconsin’s Chequamegon Bay. 
Most authors are from small, northern Wisconsin towns; Many have never written for publication. Asked for a story about something that had touched their hearts, they responded with tender, humorous, and poignant tales of great variety: best friends, loss of love, children, animals, places, and historic events. Every story is illustrated with photography or art. 
You'll find laughter in these pages, and some tears.
EVERY book purchased will protect habitat on land and in the water, by generating a donation to the Bayfield Regional Conservancy – a land trust serving Bayfield, Sawyer, Douglas and Ashland Counties in northeast Wisconsin.

I LOVE the book.. the artistry, the poetry.. although, I wouldn't call it poetry in describing it to others, I explained it as "People who live by the lake, grew up by the lake, or were called by the lake... it's visions of what their life is like and how the lake is a ever-present bystander, the stranger in the crowd that 'gets' your joy, your pain, your angst and absorbs it."

I walked in the door, saw Love Stories of the Bay, and was drawn into the book for the next hour. The beautiful presentation, inspiring photography and moving stories make this a must-read.

Stories shape our lives. They inspire us and feed our souls. At heart, Love Stories of the Bay is a collection of stories about people, places, landscapes and lore. From whimsical to humorous to poignant, all are heartfelt and moving and will draw in those who want to learn more about the people who make a Lake Superior community home.
