About the Book

This is the story of a journey around the world that was inspired by a lake.  Not just any lake: Lake Chelan, possibly the greatest lake in the world.

John Fahey’s, endearing, hilarious and sometimes hair-raising look at Lake Chelan encapsulates America’s passion and nostalgia for summers spent at a favorite, sunny, clear, blue lake.  The book is about all the lakes in the world, one lake in particular, and how an obsession led to a crazy adventure around the globe to prove (or disprove) once and for all why this beloved lake is truly the best lake ever.

If you love Lake Chelan, this book is required reading.  If you have another favorite lake, grab this book, take it there, pull up a beach chair, and laugh your way through a trek around the world.  Who knows?  Maybe your own favorite lake will be in the running for the coveted title.

The book will take you on a wild ride.  Along the way, you’ll meet grizzly bears, lake monsters, feisty volcanoes, waterskiing deer, and maybe even a vampire.  You’ll climb mountains, dangle from cliffs, cross oceans, ford rivers, and traverse deserts.  You’ll learn more about the fascinating lakes on this planet then you ever thought possible.  This is a true story that leaps off the page.  Anyone who loves an adventure will want to read it more than once.
