Chesterton, IN – Dr. Ken Schoon’s new book, Dreams of Duneland, is the inspiration for a sweeping tour that will change the way you think about the region.

An educator, geologist, author and Northwest Indiana native, Dr. Schoon is retired from the School of Education at Indiana University Northwest following a 40 year career. The author of a number of books, Schoon’s latest is a beautifully illustrated introduction to the Dunes region, its history and future.

The Dreams of Duneland tour is scheduled for Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. CST. The day begins at Dunes Learning Center, located on the grounds of the historic Good Fellow Youth Camp, inside Indiana Dunes National Park. Following a brief presentation, a chartered bus will transport participants to historic and natural sites highlighted in the book—including Bailly Homestead, Chellberg Farm and the Century of Progress World’s Fair Homes.

Tickets for this unique overview of the natural history and ecology of the dunes are just $65 per person. The price includes transportation, lunch and a copy of “Dreams of Duneland” to take home.
