A local man has written a book about the life of his parents in northern Michigan between 1906-1950. His name is Rex Southwell and he wanted to write about the end of the virgin timber in northern Michigan - the cutting away of the gigantic trees that had been there since the glaziers melted. He felt that it's important that people know how people struggled to make a living and raising a family. The book is "Tall Trees Tall People: A Family's Struggle to Stand while Virgin Timber Falls".
