Exploring America's Highways: Michigan Trip Trivia, by Michael Heim
This book is not just about tiny hamlets, however. The author kicks off with a fascinating chapter about Detroit that covers the auto industry, geological history, music and sports trivia, and dozens of interesting factoids about prominent citizens. Find out how the Commodores almost called themselves "The Commodes," and why Tom Selleck might have become an architect instead of an actor. There's interesting info about Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, along with the story of why the Vlasic pickle company has a stork for a mascot.
