Description

Lake Superior's North Shore -- the vast stretch between Duluth and Grand Portage -- is nearly 150 miles long, with an abundance of state parks, state and national forests, streams and rivers, and over thirty distinct communities representing a broad range of ethnic and religious groups. Many visitors have made the famous drive along scenic Highway 61, the central artery of this popular vacation destination, but few are aware of the historical significance of the villages, homes, and markers that they pass along the way. In this book, Deborah Morse-Kahn takes tourists and armchair travellers alike on a unique journey along old roads and byways and into the hidden history of the land and communities along a stunning section of this great inland sea. This informative, easy-to-follow guide offers the history of Native Americans, the historic fur trade years, the development of Norwegian fishing villages, and the heyday of splendid tourist lodges like Babe Ruth's famous Naniboujou -- traces of which can be found in the grand sites and unassuming structures that still stand today. Detailed maps and practical visitor information help tourists to hit their favourite destinations with ease.
