A feast for the eyes that will transport you to the
splendors of Voyageurs National Park!

OUR BEST SELLING BOOK THIS SEASON, VOYAGEUR SKIES chronicles spring, summer, fall, and winter in Voyageurs National Park through Don Breneman's stunning photographs, while University of Minnesota meteorologist/ climatologist Dr. Mark Seeley explains the effects of weather and climate on the shaping of the park's pristine landscape.

How has the climate in Voyageurs Park changed in recent years and what does this mean going forward? Climate change is already impacting Minnesota's water resources.

While celebrating the spectacular beauty to be found in Minnesota's only national park, VOYAGEUR SKIES facilitates wider discussion and understanding of implications for the future if the quality of the state's water resources is to be preserved.

Written for general readers and also for classroom use, this book is the centerpiece for educational programs to be offered jointly by the University of Minnesota Water Resources Center and Extension.

"Don Breneman and Mark Seeley capture in words and photos the special place that is Voyageurs National Park. They have woven together meteorological science with art to reveal the manner in which weather and landscapes are so intricately intertwined. The beauty of each season in Voyageurs National Park comes alive in these pages."
