Author Ted Walker seems to have picked up where Ernest Hemingway tales of the area left off. This is "must read" for those who enjoy Northern Michigan's colorful and charming personalities.
For any of you traveling this summer to Horton Bay (yes, it is a real place) stop in the Horton Bay General Store and hear about Ernest and Ted first hand from the locals who have been known, to "chew the fat" with strangers. If you plan to visit in the fall, catch the annual Ernest Hemingway Festival. Information on this can be found by writing the Chamber of Commerce Petoskey, Michigan 49770.
P.S. In the current issue of National Geographic Traveler, I understand their is an excellent interview with Ted Walker regarding Horton Bay and his unforgettable book, "We Eat Our RoadKill."
This book is written in such a way that it makes you wonder, did that really happen in Horton Bay. The author has such an imagination that it's amazing he has not been institutionalized yet. I started the book and could not put it down until the last page so make sure you have a couple three hours free before you open it. That's how we talk in Michigan. A couple three is a few.
