Little Mossback Amelia - Francis M. Fox
This book is a happy childrens story, of the life and lot of the homsteaders of Charlevoix and Emmet counties, in the beginning years of white settlement. These homsteaders were called Mossbacks, because their first temporary homes were dugouts, built into a hillside. They covered the roof dirt with moss, to repel rain, hence Mossback.
Price $7.95 + shipping
The Blue Meteor-The Tragic Story of the Passenger Pigeon - Reginald Sharkey
The tragic saga of passenger pigeons, once numbering in millions, and their annual migration to nesting areas in this region is recounted in this book. Petoskey was the center of a frenzied hunt, one that helped feed the local population but doomed the birds to extinction.
