Call it North Country: The Story of Upper Michigan
Wayne State University Press, 1986 - 281 頁
From Back Cover: This is a newspaperman's history of the Upper Peninsula. Intrigued by the place name Michigamme, Martin and his wife stopped there on their wedding trip in 1940 and became enchanted with the Upper Peninsula. Out of that attraction came more visits, a string of interviews and a series of tales told by miners, loggers, hunters and trappers. Originally published in 1944, it is a collection of nineteen lively stories told in convenient chunks for quick reading.-Detroit Free Press. The passage of time provides a better test of the quality of a book than litmus paper does of the acidity of a solution. This book was originally written in 1944 by one of our most powerful documentary authors. [Call it North Country] reads like a novel. If you're a history buff, it reads better than a novel. This book could not be written today. The witnesses to the development of upper Michigan would be missing and twice or thrice told tales would lose much detail and would not have the ring of truth which authenticates history.-Inland Seas.
