The Allure of Michigan's Past


This is the tenth book in Massie's best-selling Voyages into Michigan's Past series. It contains 31 colorful, well-researched and often unknown episodes about Michigan's heritage. 

    Fascinating chapters range from Indian gambling in the 1600s, nineteenth century Great Lakes shipping, pioneer adventures, the Underground Railroad, Carnegie Hero Medal winners, how Michigan milkweed saved WWII sailor's lives, and much more. 

    Massie's work has won him statewide recognition. In 2007 the Historical Society of Michigan presented him the first ever "Lifetime Achievement Award."
