This past weekend my family took a little getaway up to Petoskey and Mackinac Island. If you've never been to the shores of Lake Michigan, you don't know what you're missing—Northern Michigan is absolutely beautiful, especially in the summer and fall.
Reading some of the Native American folklore from the region only deepens our appreciation. Sleeping Bear Press has several lovely picture books about Northern Michigan in the Legends series. (Click here to view the entire series on Amazon.)
