Publisher's description: This richly photographed collection follows the arc of change in the peaceful Sleeping Bear Bay region in Michigan from its late 19th- and early 20th-century fishing and farming beginnings through the evolution of an idyllic boys' camp and boarding school between the 1920s and the 1960s, and eventually to the resort that develops alongside. Organized by year, the book captures the daily life of campers and students as they learn Latin, build boats, study aeronautics, grow vegetables, and raise animals. As they move toward adulthood, so does the region, which today is marked by a thriving vacation industry.
