Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Some of Michigan’s most noteworthy yarns and compelling characters were lost down the corridors of history—until now. Discover the Nain Rouge, that “Demon from the Strait,” spotted everywhere from the Battle of Bloody Run in 1763 to the Detroit Riot in 1967. Meet folks like Major Stickney, who named his sons One and Two and his youngest daughter Indiana. Inspect the Toledo War’s ill-equipped militia and sort through an armament that included a barrel of whiskey and broom handles from the local hardware store. Spend time with “Mad Anthony” Wayne and pay a visit to Cadillac, the wickedest town in the Midwest. Author Alan Naldrett covers these stories and more in this collection of forgotten tales.
