A celebration of the cycle of seasons in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - from the magic of spring in the north to the silent mysteries of winter - from summer's abundance to the fragrances and color of autumn.
A former university professor and author shares an intimate look at the special people and places in a beautiful little-known part of the country - the rugged, yet fragile northern peninsula of Michigan bounded by three of the Great Lakes.
Explore abandoned gold mines and ghost towns. Saunter down old woods roads. Visit winter waterfalls and enjoy a pasty picnic on the remote hillside. Follow the history of long ships on Lake Superior and life in a 19th century logging camp. Canoe the Sylvania Wilderness, wander back roads for wild berries and search for agates on Great Lakes beaches.
Sample chapters: Return to the Porkies; The Way of Snowshoes; The Lure of OId Woods Roads; A Grand Island Trek; The Cabin; Ghost Towns; Sylvania: Mini-Canoe Country.
