Updated and revised, Sleeping Bear: Yesterday and Today has everything you need to know about this spectacular national park in northwestern Michigan-practically from the formation of the planet to the present, with some ruminations about the future of the great dunes. Using over 250 illustrations and photographs, the author presents regional folklore, prehistory, and history of this beautiful area. The volume provides insight into the native peoples who inhabited the region before the Europeans, to the European explorers and the white settlements that followed. Sleeping Bear: Yesterday and Today is a fascinating account of the land of the dunes and the people who've lived there, wrapped in an often-gripping story.
