Exciting, will grab and hold student's attention. Puts students in the shoes of the Native Americans, explorers, pioneer women, lumberjacks and early auto workers. The history presented in the text book continues right to the present so students can see how our state has evolved with the strengths and problems we have today!

Forging and Michigan are two words which go together! Our state has been forged by the action of nature and by the toil of men and women.
