The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is the northern of the two major land masses that make up the U.S. State of Michigan. The Upper Peninsula contains 29% of the land area of Michigan but just 3% of its total population. Residents are frequently called Yoopers and have a strong regional identity.
The first known inhabitants of the UP were tribes speaking Algonquian languages. Early tribes included the Menominee, Nocquet, and the Mishinimaki. The French were probably the first European to visit the peninsula.

My second home the UP
I was raised in the corn country of the lower peninsula but ,the UP holds a special place in my heart. I was lucky in that both my parents were from the UP .Throughout my child hood we spent every summer at my grandparents Harry and Louise. I would spend all day looking for even the smallest agate walking to sable falls across the dunes to sable lake . I felt like such an explorer . Such freedom for a young boy . Gary St Martin’s book lets me relive these cherished memories in a very modern way through the photos ,videos and interactive maps. For those wanting to discover this wonderful work of Mother Nature I see no better place to begin your journey of Michigan’s UP then with Mr St Martin’s book .Thank You ,Gary ,for all your work and dedication to this magnificent project .
My family are from the Upper peninsula and I spent a lot of my young years here. My father's job required us to live in other places in the U.S. but we always came back to visit. When I was older and working in Wisconsin, we bought a cabin in the U.P. and spent all our free time there. Now that we're retired , we bought a house and made it a permanent move. I can't began to tell you about the book I discovered on I tunes by Gary St.Martin. He makes it all come alive with his pictures, videos and maps and shows me all the places I haven't been and all the places I want to see.
He also gives a nice interpretation of the history of the sites. We're so lucky to live on Lake Superior and enjoy all of it's different faces. Come up, enjoy and see for yourself.
Photographer has a keen sense of the area. Great travelogue can't wait to go there.
