He is the author of guides to Michigan's back roads and byways and great campgrounds for tent camping. He explores Michigan from Clarkston, where he lives with his wife and their two children in an old schoolhouse.

I found this guide to be exceptionally well-written and informative. As a Michigan native who moved away for many years, I was happily re-connected with routes and sites that I had either completely forgotten about or never even knew existed. This is a great book for anyone looking for a good guide to some of Michigan's hidden treasures. Kudos to the author for his impeccable research.

We live in Michigan, but we always like to take road trips and find places we never knew about. This book is a perfect fit for this! It is perfect for both day trips and weekend trips, and it covers a little bit of each region, giving ideas on where to stay, eat, and things to see. Very please with this purchase and the price!

I am a native of Michigan, but have lived elsewhere for the last 40 years. I purchased this book for a trip back this coming summer. It has given me great wealth of information regarding my home state. I will use this for my travels!!
