Some people call it the sixth Great Lake and it is the true headwater of the inland seas. Other than the people who live around it though, few people know much about it. This is Lake Nipigon.
An exploration of this body of water is presented in a new book by Nancy Scott entitled, “Lake Nipigon: Where the Great Lakes Begin.” The book provides geographical, environmental, historical and cultural information about Lake Nipigon through chapters like “Wildlife”, “European Contact”, “Settlements” and “Commercial Fishery” among several others. The book can be purchased through major outlets like Amazon and Chapters. If you would like more information about the book, turn up the speakers on your computer because a recent CBC radio interview provides an excellent overview.
