About this product
- DescriptionFor everyone from kids to adults, there is greater pleasure than summer vacation. But the American idea of travel for relaxation is actually a relatively modern concept, made possible by the construction of the railroad network and the rise of the middle class. Up North looks specifically at the history of two resort communities on the shores of Lake Huron in Michigan. A fascinating perspective on the history of leisure travel in America, Up North celebrates our common need to get away from the humdrum, and it will be welcome reading for all of us daydreaming of crystalline lakeshores.
- Author BiographyA native of St. Louis, Douglas Scott Brookes is a writer on Middle Eastern history and a translator from Turkish. He is also the author of The Concubine, the Princess, and the Teacher: Voices from the Ottoman Harem.
