Watch The Great Lakes Series
- 1 Season
These five bodies of water, created 10,000 years ago, hold 3/4 of the world's standing fresh water. Over 50 million people live within 100 miles of a Great Lake's port. Because they comprise such a large waterway, they have played a vital role in the lives and histories of many of our ancestors, and to this day continue to play that role in still equally important and vital ways.
