Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, May 20, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 157 pages
You will read about how one family, despite extremely difficult economic times, carved a living out of what was left of a great timber industry, raised their family, and lived a difficult but fulfilling life. Readers who lived during this period, particularly Michigan Yoopers (a humorous nickname of people who lived in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and folks from similar rural communities, will find themselves reliving many memories of their own lives in the chapters of this book.
