Place Called Home: Michigan's Mill Creek Story by Janie Lynn Panagopoulos, Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen
During the American Revolution, the Campbell family watched friends and neighbors move across the Straits of Mackinac to a new island home on Mackinac Island, while they stayed behind to await word of the need for a lumber mill.
"There's a land not far from here, once cleared by the hands of soldiers for firewood, where maple sugar runs and a fine, swift creek flows," states patriarch Robert Campbell. When permission comes from the British government to begin building the mill, preparations begin in earnest.
A Place Called Home: Michigan's Mill Creek Story brings history to life with authentic detail from author Janie Lynn Pangopoulos, and vivid illustrations from renowned artist Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen.
