Book - Lodge Spirit: A Brief History of Nature Appreciation in America plus An Insider's View of Look About Lodge

by Ralph M. Kneale, Jr.

During the 1940's, Ralph M. Kneale, Jr. and his parents would spend a week or two during the summer and weekends during the spring and fall living at Look About Lodge.  As Science Club members, they functioned as a host family to keep the Lodge open to the public.  Built during the height of the Great Depression by the Cleveland Natural Science Club, Look About Lodge is a highlight of Cleveland MetroParks.  Serving for decades as a clubhouse and nature education center, the great log building, about forty feet wide and nearly a hundred feet long, has been at the center of a broad program that has played a key role in educating students from around Northeast Ohio about the wonders of nature.

Mr. Kneale blends his extensive experience with a fascinating look at the progression of nature appreciation in the United States, presenting a history that is insightful and truly American.  Lodge Spirit is a book that nature-lovers and students of the environment are sure to enjoy.
