Set by a beautiful lake in a housing development, Life at the Lake tells the gentle and easy-to-read story of the many different animals who live in or around the lake. As the story unfolds, each character has an adventure, often risking his or her own life to save a friend's life. The animals' personalities and skills help them get through the tasks before them, but they all pull together in the final chapter when they are faced with a tremendous storm. Sometimes coming in contact with the humans, whom they refer to as Two Feet, the animals are often wary of them. However, they tolerate them, often outfoxing them and using them to catch a meal! Life at the Lake will make you happy, sad, excited, and maybe even make you laugh, but most of all, you will be cheering for the animals.

Concentrating on technology, economics, labor, and social history, Cradle to Grave documents the full life cycle of one of America's great mineral ranges from the 1840s to the 1960s. Lankton examines the workers' world underground, but is equally concerned with the mining communities on the surface. For the first fifty years of development, these mining communities remained remarkably harmonious, even while new, large companies obliterated traditional forms of organization and work within the industry. By 1890, however, the Lake Superior copper industry of upper Michigan started facing many challenges, including strong economic competition and a declining profit margin; growing worker dissatisfaction with both living and working conditions; and erosion of the companies' hegemony in a district they once controlled. Lankton traces technological changes within the mines and provides a thorough investigation of mine accidents and safety. He then focuses on social and labor history, dealing especially with the issue of how company paternalism exerted social control over the work force. A social history of technology, Cradle to Grave will appeal to labor, social and business historians.
