Northern’s history department and Center for Upper Peninsula Studies recently published the following books:

Two Months in the Copper Region, edited by history student Zach Bennett. In 1845, geologist-historian Charles Wittlesley spent two months exploring and documenting his travels from Sault Ste. Marie to the Ontonagon River. At the time, the Upper Peninsula had only been open for settlement for three years and was still very much a wild and unsettled frontier. Until recently, this account of U.P. life was “lost” in archives.

A Jewel in the Crown: An Environmental History of Presque Isle Park, Marquette, Michigan describes John Anderton’s (Geography) geographical and historical research on the local landmark.

Native Americans of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula: A Chronology to 1900, by Russell Magnaghi (History) is a guide for researchers interested in the region’s rich Native American history.
