'Great Lake Island Escapes' details dozens of Great Lake islands

The Great Lakes Basin is the largest surface freshwater system on Earth and is dotted with thousands of islands.

"Great Lakes Island Escapes: Ferries and Bridges to Adventure" explores dozens of these islands. Author Maureen Dunphy made numerous trips to a total of 135 islands that are accessible by ferry or bridge in the Great Lakes Basin.

Dunphy joined us on The Nine to tell us more about the islands and her book. You can hear from her in the video player above.
