Riassunto: FINALIST: 2010 BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARDS (Foreword Reviews) In his new book Paradise North, Lon Emerick celebrates both the village of Paradise (with wild blueberry pie at the Berry Patch Cafe) and the state of mind of many residents and visitors about the "land above the bridge." Includes 32 tales of a northern paradise told by a long-time lover of the Superior Peninsula of Michigan. Divided by the four distinct seasons of the region, the book is illustrated with 28 color photographs: Little Presque Isle in all seasons, storms on Lake Superior, Autumn color blazing from granite outcrops, fishing at a wilderness waterfall, ice rounds along the lake shore, and 23 black/white photographs and illustrations. Chapters range from excursions in all seasons, admiration for birds and wildflowers, out-of-the-way U.P. places, cautions about the region's future, as well as a nod to several talented residents. Chapters include: The Joy of Wilderness, Goin' Camp, Greening of the North, The Sound of Silence, Celts by the Inland Ses, A Daughter of the Land, From Lake to Shining Lake.
About the Author: Lon Emerick, Professor Emeritus of speech pathology/audiology at Northern Michigan University, is the author of university texbooks, numerous professional articles and several other Upper Peninsula books, including award-winners Going Back to Central (Mine), The Superior Peninsula, You Wouldn't Like it Here and You STILL Wouldn't Like it Here. He is a self-proclaimed inspector of wild lands and waterfalls and a hearty admirer of Henry David Thoreau. He lives with his wife Lynn in a log home surrounded by the woods and waters of the U.P. of Michigan, not far from the south shore of Lake Superior. He has two daughters living and working in the forests of Oregon and Montana - as a wilderness manager, and a wildland fire helicopter manager.
