Childhood Memories of Michigan's Upper Peninsula

by Carol Brisson Zechlin
176 pages
7 x 10 inches softcover

Childhood stories of growing up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula during the 1950's.

"You're from the U.P.?" a classmate queried during my very first week away at college. She looked me up and down then threw her ringer. "Do you have indoor plumbing there?"

I was astounded. Was this a serious question? Apparently so, for she was awaiting my reply.

"Well, of course!" I spluttered. "We also have telephones, T.V. and technology!" But I had to wonder: did I look or act as if I just walked out of the backwoods?

Yoopers are proud and independent people who have chosen to make Michigan's Upper Peninsula their home. The Yooper way of life is filled with family, friends and fun. Explore Yooper life during the 1950's through the eyes of 6th grader Carol Brisson, who grew up in Norway. Entertaining stories about the church smorgasbord, the Christmas pageant, summer camp, ski jumping competitions plus many other adventures will bring back fond memories or introduce you to a way of life that many cherish.
