Overview

Life in a Northern Town takes the reader on a trip down Nostalgia Lane and veers off, at times, to move in and out of all its nooks and crannies, creeks and fields, metes and bounds, longitudes and latitudes to discover-and be saturated in-the joy of its peripheral travels. The author lingers for mere minutes at a time before moving on to a continuous tour where the rich textured anecdotes dynamically coat the broad paintings that capture your attention with sometimes poignant and sentimental, but mostly inherently entertaining grains along the way. Another turn, another divergent, but amusing surprise. He presents that box of chocolates with him in a roulette-shaped interior with an inordinate amount of selections that offer a variety of innards and consistencies, a number of them with an extraordinary supply of nuts. All are delectable in their own right. So enjoy them while you're looking around at all that stuff. Intentional is it's sectional . . . perfect bathroom-reading friendly passages that allow for less commitment and advantage of that variable pace, not to mention a 100 proof shot of delight. PG Family-Friendly Approved.

    Also grew up here and graduated ahead of the author. Went to school with some of the people he mentions in his book. The book is okay for bringing up memories, some of which I had forgotten about for better or worse. Some of the dates are not accurate, when John Lehto started teaching, when the musical Oliver was performed etc. Maybe more about life in general without spending as much time on Gitchee-Gumee etc., would have made a better read or more balanced book.

    I may be a "tad" bit biased on my review as I grew up

    I may be a "tad" bit biased on my review as I grew up in this "small" town in the Keweenaw and Jack Hart was a fellow Preacher's Kid (PK). This of course, if you are not aware, makes you part of a unique family and allows you to often behave and participate in activities that others may shy away from or even find dangerous. This being said Jack's ability to describe life in this small and remote place actually transports me right back to my childhood. As I read along I could see the memories clear in my mind and often even smell those odors in the air that are associated with the story being told. Our little "neck" of the woods is often not even included on a map of North America or the United States. I am sure if you pick up this book and begin to read about growing up a kid in the "Yoop" you too will be transported back to your childhood and the memories that are buried in your past. If there is someone in the room with you be ready to explain why you have that sheepish grin on your face and why they hear you chuckle every now and again. All in all a very "enjoyable" read and ride through life in our "small" town.
