Product Details


"This is an excellent interesting book about Michigan. I got this book for my personal enjoyment. I liked this book because I learned some new information about Michigan that I did not know before reading this book. Some of the interesting information that is mentioned in this book includes the following interesting information: Battle Creek, Michigan was once home to 80 cereal companies. Daniel Frank Gerber founded Gerber's Baby Food. Domino's Pizza and Little Caesar's Pizza started out in Michigan. The name Michigan came from the Native Americans from a word which translates to large water or large lake. Michigan is bordered by four out of five of the Great Lakes. No matter where a person is standing in the state of Michigan, that particular person will never be further than 85 miles from one of the Great Lakes that border the state of Michigan. Michigan is the only place in the world that has a floating post office. It is on the JW Westcott II vessel which is located on the Detroit River. Google co-founder Larry Page was born in East Lansing, MI. In the past American Top 40 radio show host Casey Kasem was born in Detroit. His real first name was Kemal. Singer Madonna was born in Bay City, MI. Michigan is home to five National Parks." by William


"This is another one of this author's state trivia books. The book starts off with how the state was named, and then goes on describe early events and people in the state. The second part of the book goes into state culture, and how there are famous entertainers/people are from the state. The third part of the book talks about inventions credited to people from the state, and how the inventions came about. The fourth, and final part talks about the state's mysteries and urban legends. Overall, if you are a Michigan resident, or a fan of the state, you'll like and appreciate this book, otherwise, it's a good reference book to have around to glean facts on people, places and events in Michigan. Recommended." by D.Dalal
