"It’s not as easy to forgive Howard for changing his focus midway through the book. The engrossing memoir slams to a halt after Howard has spent six weeks on the job, and the diary-style entries are replaced by several academic chapters about the history of the region… Although the personal story has great promise, the book ultimately disappoints."

Synopsis

Michigan's Upper Peninsula is one of America's hidden treasures-overlooked and ignored as a place to visit compared to Vermont or coastal Maine. It is decidedly not Yellowstone Park, Disney World, or New Orleans. The UP and the yoopers, as they are called, like it jsut that way. they enjoy their own character, culture, and history. The land of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world, is their world, along with the fingerlike Keweenaw Penisnsula that dares to thrust deep northward into the heart of this beautiful, and sometimes dangerous, magnigicient glacial gift. This is the setting for which Longfellow wrote his magical poem The Song of Hiawatha. Come along and enjoy the adventures of a surgeon working and exploring the land around the lake, the Keweenaw, the Copper Country history, the Okibwa and Chippewa Indians, and more.
