Book Chapter
A chapter from the book "Hiking Michigan" is presented. It focuses on Michigan's Upper Peninsula (UP) which is being promoted as Nature's Theme Park. It became part of the state as a consolation prize in a boundary dispute between Michigan and Ohio in the mid-1830s. The U.P. contains one-third of Michigan's total land area and stretches over 380 miles from Ironwood on the west to the tip of Drummond Island on the east and is surrounded by the Great Lakes Superior, Michigan and Huron.
