We rated this book:


This volume is about Michigan’s upper peninsula. Notable as the birthplace of Hemingway, it is a magical place known for the art capital of Traverse City and the magnificent forests and convergence of the Great Lakes. The author was born in the area. He is acclaimed for his many plays and poems. Being geographically specific may make these poems of interest to those very familiar with the area. <br><br>It is a slim volume, although it holds some seventy plus poems. I selected this book based on my memories of this area, but unfortunately I did not find poems in this volume that spoke to me. Of course, all poetry stems from a very personal take on an experience. Those readers who relish the poetry of this author will find enough variety in this book to delight them. <br><br>Upper Michigan is, indeed, a magical place of great beauty and is truly worthy of the best hymns and poetry that nature can inspire.
