Exploring the hidden treasures of otherwise forgotten authors while also acknowledging the Michigan-set stories of giants like Hemingway, Dave and Jack Dempsey delve into the state’s literary heritage, as robust, diverse, and inexhaustible as the natural beauty of the place that nurtured it. This second volume of “ink trails” continues to tell the story of the remarkable writers, powerful words, and sublime nature of Michigan in the same well-researched and entertaining prose as the first.
“The Dempsey brothers have done readers a service with this collection of colorful portraits of Michigan authors—those who are world-renowned and especially those who have been undeservedly forgotten. I look forward to exploring the works of a number of writers with whom I was not familiar until I read this delightful book.”
—Jerry Dennis, author of A Walk in the Animal Kingdom and The Living Great Lakes
