Accidental Paradise

ACCIDENTAL PARADISE: 13,000-YEAR HISTORY OF PRESQUE ISLE

By: David Frew and Jerry Skrypzak

While "Accidental Paradise" identifies contemporary threats and concerns, it is essentially a story of hope and promise. Beautiful images, poetry, and wonderful stories percolate from the pages, as the prose traces a legacy of history and details the partners who have grown with the park: Waldameer, Erie Water Works, Algeria Farms, Sarah's, the Coast Guard, and more.  

Enjoy the book, then go to Presque Isle.  Wander beaches, roadways, and trails.  Visit TREC and attend programs.  Feel the wonder as you honor the history.

For more information, including how, where, and when to purchase the book, please visit AccidentalParadise.com.
