You STILL Wouldn't Like it Here - The Sequel continues Emerick's high-spirited humorous look at living in the U.P. It will make you laugh as much as the first book: You Wouldn't Like it Here - A Guide to the Real Upper Peninsula of Michigan (a Humor Finalist in Foreword Book of the Year Awards.) The sequel comes with some of the many great stories the author received from readers of the first book and more disturbing illustrations by Carolyn Damstra.
Lon Emerick is a fifth-generation descendant of Cornish copper miners in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and a former professor at Northern Michigan University.
After writing several award-winning books of tribute to his home region, and seeing changes that come with population growth and "progress," he became convinced that he was attracting too many visitors and transplants to this quiet, wild and beautiful land.
Again prodded by the insistent demands of the elusive and cranky Sam Satterly through mysterious notes - this time left in the rural mailbox - the author ratchets up warnings about the horrible crawly, bitey insects, weather, dangerous wildlife and strange locals. He advises travelers to go anywhere but the Upper Peninsula but, if they insist, he asks for a light touch on a fragile land, and respect for a way of life that its residents hold dear.
