For everyone from kids to adults, there is no greater pleasure than summer vacation. But the American idea of travel for relaxation is actually a relatively modern concept, made possible by the construction of the railroad network and the rise of the middle class. "Up North" looks specifically at the history of two resort communities on the shores of Lake Huron in Michigan. A fascinating perspective on the history of leisure travel in America, "Up North" celebrates our common need to get away from the humdrum, and it will be welcome reading for all of us daydreaming of crystalline lakeshores.
