Reviews - What do customers think about Growing Up Yooper: Childhood Memories of Michigan's Upper Peninsula?
A Charming Look Back Sep 21, 2007
I grew up at the same time and about 50 miles from the author's setting for this book and could identify with many of her experiences. I especially could relate to her school experiences and enjoyed having those memories evoked to be re-enjoyed. I think Carol Brisson Zechlin would have enjoyed taking the fictional bus trip my characters took in The Dream Catcher Tour as they were drawn from people I knew and loved while growing up in the Upper Peninsula.
Books such as "Growing Up Yooper" are a valuable contribution to the rich cultural history of this special place in the North country.
