Now Available - A New Book Chronicling the History of Coon Lake
We are taking pre-orders for the next book printing. Books should be available late November or early December. Order here.
Coon Lake area residents will be the first to have the opportunity to purchase a new book: "Chronicles of Coon Lake”. The book was written under the auspices of the Coon Lake Improvement Association and initially spearheaded by the late Ken Johnson. His vision was to record in one book the interesting lake stories passed from one generation or neighbor to another before they were forgotten or gone.
This 90 page, 9” x 12” coffee table book, records not only the stories, but many of the photos that accompany them. Interviews were conducted with relatives of those who made major impact on the lake and its residents. If you’ve lived on the lake for a long time, you may have heard some of the stories but perhaps not all of any one story. If you’re new to the lake, this book provides a wealth of information on the lake, the people and its events. Not forgetting how beautiful our seasonal changes are, two of our lake poets add their poetry to the center of the book. Read on.
