9781451006254: Castle Nowhere: Lake-Country Sketches (Classic Reprint)

Lake Michigan, the northern curve of that silver sea, was a wilderness unexplored. It is a wilderness still, showing even now on the school-maps nothing save an empty waste of colored paper, generally a pale, cold yellow suitable to the climate, all the way from Point St. Ignace to the iron ports on the Little Bay de Noquet, or Badderknock in lake phraseology, a hundred miles of nothing, according to the map-makers, who, knowing nothing of the re gion, set it down accordingly, withholding even those long-legged letters, Chip-pe-was, Eic-ca-rees, that stretch accommodatingly across so much townless territory farther west. This northern curve is and always has been off the route to anywhere; and mortals, even I ndians, prefer as a general rule, when once started, to go somewhere.
