Little Michigan: 100 Towns Around 600
Little Michigan, by Kathryn Houghton, is for anyone who grew up in a small town and for everyone who takes pride in being called a Michigander. It’s one book, and it’s 100 towns to love. They’re Michigan’s smallest towns, and they have great stories. Experience the charm of 100 small towns with populations under 600. Meet the friendly people who call these places home. The book also includes a memorial list of veterans who died in war.
Each entry in the book presents full-color photographs, fun facts, and details about what makes the community unique. It’s almost as if you’re walking down Main Street, waving hello to the folks who know what it means to help their neighbors. The featured locations range from quaint to historic, and they wonderfully represent Michigan’s rich history and culture.
About the author: Born and raised in mid-Michigan, Kathryn Houghton has spent most of her life in the Mitten State. She can’t imagine living anywhere else—and not just because no one in Michigan looks at her funny when she calls it pop instead of soda. It’s the people that make Michigan feel like home. She teaches writing and editing at Michigan State University. She lives in Holt with her sister and four dogs.
Little Michigan is part of the Tiny Towns series of coffee-table books, a state-by-state celebration of our smallest towns. Each book spotlights the fun facts, histories, and uniqueness of 100 rural communities within a given state. Every featured town gets a full spread that’s jam-packed with fascinating information, as well as full-color photographs that represent the town’s charm and appeal.
