cully gage was the pen name for charles van riper. cully is Finnish for charles. gage was his grandpa last name. this book contains stories of his child hood days in tioga a fictional town in the upper penninsula of michigan. he really grew up in champion michigan. the stories he tells take place in the early 1900 to 1920. times were tough no t.v. radio even the newspapers were days old and were saved to be used in the out house. the mine had caved in and was closed down for good. all the good timber had been cut and the logging industry was going down hill. everybody hunted fished and gardened for their food. the winters were very cold with lots of snow. evrybody had a wood cooking stove. things weren't as easy as we have it now. ther are alot of real characters in his story. they are based on real people but he changed their names.

Cully Gage is an inspiring writer and his northwoods books are wonderful reads for any age. They vividly describe life in the early 20th century in Michigan's beautiful but unforgiving wilderness of the "U.P.". Each story, as it's told, unfolds before the reader, making you feel as if you could actually be there. It made me wish that I were there on more occasions than one. Kids will love these stories as well as adults interested in history, wilderness, bravery and humor. I highly recommend this for ANY collection.

If you're a Michigander or lover of the Upper Peninsula, you must read this series of books. Colorful tales of life and times with oddball characters. The author is like the Mark Twain of Michigan.
