BeschreibungThe story of Upper Michigan, with something of the quality of Herbert Asbury, this is a panorama of the Upper Peninsula, in tales of wilderness country, people, solitude. From the pioneering era to the paternal giant businesses of today, here is a picture of the booms in copper, iron, lumber, with only iron important in present production. There are the miners, the multi-nationalities among imigrants, the ghost towns, the canal and the boats, the life and death of company towns, the bonanzas, the silver Street girls...and the conclusion that the country, though not on the crest of the war boom, is not dead and still retains its toughness. Vigorous portrait, for the Molbrook market, rather then conventional regional book market. (Kirkus Reviews)
