WDET, April 23, 2014

“Reinforces the park’s status as an anchor in the history of the city and the state, tracing its usage through the years and uncovering tales of a unique public space that epitomizes the ups and downs of Detroit’s three centuries”

Michigan History magazine


“For anyone with an interest in Michigan history – weaves into the matrix of the story of Capitol Park and Michigan’s first governor an account of the growth, decline, and the current renaissance of the historic city of Detroit. The book is lovingly written, by a man in love with Michigan’s history – truly, it is a labor of love.”
