Summary
Get ready to discover the rich history of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. From its earliest days, it has evoked words of love, beauty, mystery and legend. Drawing on oral histories, newspapers, census data, archives and libraries, Russell M. Magnaghi has written the seminal history of a very ?special place? as seen through the eyes of the men and women who have lived here-the famous and not so famous. For the first time in over a century, a complete history of the U.P.-from prehistoric origins to the present-is available. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan: A History, is an extraordinary book celebrating this unique sense of place. (text from back cover)
