My winter project is to read all the books in the Crystal Falls Library on history of the Upper Peninsula.
     I am almost done with the two huge volumes of history :   “Superior Heartland, a Backwoods History” .   It is Library of Congress number  89-90710, in case you want to obtain a copy thru your local library. The two volumes total  1559 pages!
     There are many illustrations, including maps & old photos.   Since he is from the Marquette area …. many of the items are from the “Heartland” area of Lake Superior  shoreline …. lots from Marquette  local.
