Author: Josh Bishop

KDL Description:


Although Paul Vachon was born and raised in the Detroit area, he’s always been aware of the fact that Michigan consists of two peninsulas?different in many ways but both integral parts of the Great Lake State. His first introduction to the Upper Peninsula was as a youngster, when his family took a motor trip around Lake Superior. A few years later, while attending a summer camp near Gaylord, he enjoyed trips to Mackinac Island; and as an adult, he’s frequently visited the Upper Peninsula as a tourist. —Provided by the Publisher
