The Third Coast is much like the place it chronicles: interesting, not at all ostentatious, and a great amount of fu.  . -Tom Bissell, author, The Father of All Things. In a nutshell, McClelland spent 109 days driving more than 9,000 miles around all five of our Great Lakes; meeting people, exploring Lakes' history and lore, visiting offbeat places as well as famous landmarks, and learning the signature attitudes, traditions and cultures of the hometown peoples who live by the Lakes'.

We’re used to thinking of the United States as having two coasts, the Atlantic and the Pacific. But those of us who live and vacation in between can also enjoy two other coasts, each of which calls itself the Third. If you want to know more about the cultures on this lengthy shoreline, look for The Third Coast: Sailors, Strippers, Fishermen, Folksingers, Long-Haired Ojibway Painters, and God-Save-the-Queen Monarchists of the Great Lakes (2008), by Ted McClelland. As for me, I’m closing my eyes now to remember those spectacular sunsets over the lake.

Chronicling the author’s 10,000-mile “Great Lakes Circle Tour,” this travel memoir seeks to answer a burning question: Is there a Great Lakes culture, and if so, what is it? Largely associated with the Midwest, the Great Lakes region actually has a culture that transcends the border between the United States and Canada. United by a love of encased meats, hockey, beer, snowmobiling, deer hunting, and classic-rock power ballads, the folks in Detroit have more in common with citizens in Windsor, Ontario, than those in Wichita, Kansas—while Toronto residents have more in common with Chicagoans than Montreal's population. Much more than a typical armchair travel book, this humorous cultural exploration is filled with quirky people and unusual places that prove the obscure is far more interesting than the well known.

This might be a travelogue, but it won't put you to sleep. Read it to get a good glimpse of a 9,600 mile trip around the Great Lakes and appreciate all of the local color along the way. Read it to see what good writing that keeps you reading looks like! Read it if you're from the Great Lakes (I am) and want to gain more of an appreciation and sense of pride of where you live (I do!).

I read this one all the way to the end in just two days! I couldn't put it down.

My only gripe with Third Coast is that the author chose to weave in a lot of his own left-leaning political views, and that gets distracting...enough so that I can't give it 5 stars. I'd give it 4 1/2 if I could, though. While I respect the author's beliefs, I opened this book to read about the Great Lakes, not to read political opinions.

If you want to really know the communities around the Great Lakes, this is a good book to start. The author interviews people from all walks of life in these communities. There are maps to guide the reader along. It makes me want to travel the Great Lakes for the experience.

I wanted this book as I had just done the Lake Superior Circle. It is interesting and he found many off the main road sites.
Many of the things he wrote about happened by circumstance and may not be available to the average tourist. Overall, if you are planning on visiting any of the Great Lakes use this as a guide.

"The Third Coast" by Ted McClelland is an unsung American Classic that should be taught in all high school and college American Literature classes. "The Third Coast" literally puts many, no, most, books currently termed American Literature to shame. It is in the same genre as John Steinbeck's rightfully famous "Travels with Charley" or Kurault's "On the Road with Charles Kurault" but "The Third Coast" is markedly better. Neither Ernest Hemmingway nor any of his contemporaries could have written anything as good even if they had lived to be 500. And for the aficionado of local histories, "The Third Coast" is pure 24k Gold.
In a nutshell, McClelland spent 109 days driving more than 9,000 miles around all five of our Great Lakes; meeting people, exploring Lakes' history and lore, visiting offbeat places as well as famous landmarks, and learning the signature attitudes, traditions and cultures of the hometown peoples who live by the Lakes'. And the Lakes' people and culture is every bit as unique and interesting as those of The South, The Wild West, California, and possibly Mars.
Imagine going on an extended, leisurely vacation through History and a gorgeous and awesomely vigorous country with Mark Twain or Will Rogers as your travelling companion. McClelland's skills as an observer and the crisp freshness of his writing style are superlative... or better. His stunning command of Prose combined with his delightful candor and sly Twain-istic Wit makes the journey (and the pages) seem to flash by. Fact is: "The Third Coast" is a book you could thoroughly enjoy simply for the excellence of the writing regardless of whether you had any interest in the topic. I was on page 117 before I remembered to take a sip of my Pepsi ! You'll love it !

Having an interest in Great Lakes History and spending a lot of time there the last 10 years, I really enjoyed it. I grew up in Michigan and didn't see too much of the state until I'd been gone about 20 years. I have been many of the places he mentioned, so it was easy to picture what he talked about.

Feels like I was on the road with the author. Visited many of the places by water but now want to go by car...
