Date:8/6/2014

MA (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is one of America’s hidden treasures. Overlooked and ignored as a place to visit, it is decidedly not Yellowstone Park, Disney World, or New Orleans. The UP and the yoopers, 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 Peninsula that dares to thrust deep northward into the heart of this beautiful, and sometimes dangerous, magnificent glacial gift. This is the setting for which Longfellow wrote his magical poem The Song of Hiawatha.

“Yankee Yooper on the Keweenaw” written by Philip J. Howard, Jr., M.D. tells his adventures as a surgeon working and exploring the land around the lake, the Keweenaw, the Copper Country history, the Ojibwa and Chippewa Indians, and more.

Readers are invited to come along with the author and learn all about the yoopers, their culture and history, Father Marquette, and Michigan’s connection to the Mississippi River. They will see how the UP transformed itself from a copper-mining industrial area back to a most beautiful and wonderful part of America and so much more.

A wonderful journey not to be missed, “Yankee Yooper on the Keweenaw” is a short memoir, travel log, and Keweenaw description and history rolled into one readers of all ages will sure to enjoy and definitely learn from.
