Storyline

This Traveltalks entry roams through the northern end of Michigan's Lower Peninsula and makes a short visit to the Upper Peninsula. We start with a ride in a dune buggy on the Sleeping Bear sand dunes. Then it's on to Traverse City, the cherry capital of the world. In Harrison, we visit with Spikehorn Meyer, who lives with the bears that roam freely on his large natural preserve. Our visit ends with a look at Mackinac Island and Sault Ste. Marie, with emphasis on water sports and the water transportation industry. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Roaming Through Michigan (1950)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nice entry in the TravelTalks series takes us to Michigan where we start off looking at Glen Lake, which is best known for its changing water colors. From here we visit a cherry farm where over 25-million pounds are picked each year. In Harrison, MI we're introduced to Spikehorn Meyer, the infamous bear man who lives among them. We also get to see the historic Grand Hotel as well as Castle Rock. ROAMING THROUGH MICHIGAN benefits from the terrific Technicolor, which certainly shows off all of the images that we get to see. This is especially true with the terrific blue waters as well as the stuff dealing with Meyer. I wasn't able to find too much about Meyer but he certainly seemed like a character just from the minute or so with him here. As usual, James A. FitzPatrick does a very good job with the narration.
