Up North Book Launch of Vintage Views Along Scenic M-22 including Sleeping Bear Dunes
By M. Christine Byron and Thomas R. Wilson
Sunday June 21 from 1 to 3 p.m.
Vintage Views Along Scenic M-22 including Sleeping Bear Dunes (Vintage Views Press $40.00, due June 21) follows a trail of vacationers and travelers along one of Michigan’s most scenic roads. M-22 winds through northern Manistee County, along the western side of Benzie County and outlines the Leelanau Peninsula. Vintage postcards, photographs, maps and advertisements illustrate a time when M-22 first beckoned motorists to come north to the land of beautiful beaches and sand dunes, lakes and rivers, forests and woodlands, farms and orchards. Featured are quaint towns and villages, old hotels and resorts, and attractions along the road. You’ll visit lighthouses and life saving stations, take a trip in a dunesmobile, fish for Mackinaw trout, and shop for souvenirs. You’ll visit state parks and learn how Sleeping Bear Dunes became a National Lakeshore.
