An Interesting Michigan History book

Although I read this book a few years ago, I still wanted to mention it because it deals with an unfamiliar part of Michigan’s history. Tom Powers’ Michigan Rogues, Desperadoes, and Cut-throats (Friede Publications: Davison, Michigan, 2002) is, as the title suggests, about 19th Century Michigan criminals. The book only showcases a few of Michigan’s criminals; however, I wanted to mention this book because of the descriptions of life in towns near the lumbering mills. I also wanted to mention this book because I plan to start posting information on doing Michigan genealogy.

Speaking of Michigan genealogy, I hope to begin posting on that topic soon.
