Explore the byways of the upper Midwest with award- winning writer Dennis McCann. Visit out of the way places and meet special people who help to make the Midwest a great place.
Dennis McCann's beat is the back road, where disheveled cabins tell human tales, where a long- buried Irishman raises questions and where Long Ago Lane is not so much a road name as an invitation to walk and wonder.
And where, once a year, even a man's man might wear mascara. But he can explain that--and boy, does he want to.
Whether wandering a country lane, rolling down a river road or hugging the grand shore of a great lake for days on end, McCann, a roving writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, is a guide to places old and odd and to characters who might be gone but who ought not be forgotten. Join him on beguiling byways in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois. Discover a modern-day Ulysses Grant, see where the James Gang got their comeuppance and plan a pit stop at UFFDA Mart.
His stories will take you from the oldest tavern in Iowa to a lighthouse bedroom on Superior's shore, from Chief Black Hawk's lost homeland to the Stand Up Bar. So sit back--or grab your keys- ªand come along. Either way, you'll enjoy the ride. To read an excerpt from Dennis McCann Takes You for a Ride.
