    Great History, Great Photos and a Great Read!

    A growing number of Michiganders are intrigued by the Detroit coney dog (rivaled by Flint and Jackson) but few know the history that goes along with story. This is a wonderfully researched and written book by Katherine Yung and Joe Grimm and the photos are an excellent compliment to the words. The coney dog has a great past, an intriguing present and a wonderful future and this book only makes your mouth water for a follow-up-Coney Detroit #2!
