From the introduction:
I have traveled and lived all over the state of Michigan; east, west, south, and north, especially north. I found stories everywhere I went and enjoyed them all. This study guide is a result of my love affair with Michigan. My hope is that through the stories, legends, and true-life accounts of Michigan’s rich past and present you will come to love her as I do and discover there is always more to learn and to love.
