The perfect balance of readings and writing instruction

The reader and writing guide that helps developing writers succeed using engaging essays and practical writing instruction. Back to the Lake presents reading and writing strategies together using marginal annotations to show the connections. Readings—arranged by strategy and written by classic, contemporary, and student writers—are balanced with writing advice. Now with new readings—including ones debating the value of “grit”—new advice on reading critically, and a new chapter on editing sentences.
