Stories of Old Ely and the Lake Country By Mike Hillman

Laconic phrases came out of Mike Hillman in a natural North Country Poetry. Mike then digressed -- all good storytellers digress -- to tell me, offhand and by the way, on of the most affecting small-town stories I've ever heard. In Mike Hillman I thought I had stumbled upon the soul of Ely, Minnesota..." Charles Kuralt in Charles Kuralt's America -- from the introduction of Mike's first book.
Just published and hot off the presses, 2005, comes some of the best of North Country writing. 20 plus tales, some poetically touching, some colorful, some heart-breaking -- all tales of Old Ely. A treasure for any collection, this book is a great read. Fun, boisterous and full of acorns that grow the imagination with promise. Published in Ely, MN.
