Illustrated by Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen

During the American Revolution, the Campbell family watched friends and neighbors move across the Straits of Mackinac to a new island home on Mackinac Island, while they stayed behind to await word of the need for a lumber mill.

"There's a land not far from here, once cleared by the hands of soldiers for firewood, where maple sugar runs and a fine, swift creek flows," states patriarch Robert Campbell. When permission comes from the British government to begin building the mill, preparations begin in earnest.

A Place Called Home: Michigan's Mill Creek Story brings history to life with authentic detail from author Janie Lynn Panagopoulos, and vivid illustrations from renowned artist Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen. Created in partnership with the Mackinac Island Parks Commission.
