“Island Of Adventures – Tales Of Grand Island” is about tales, legends and adventures that have occurred on or around Grand Island, Michigan, the largest island on the south shore of Lake Superior. Located near the famous Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Grand Island was once home to Native Americans, followed by fur traders and early white settlers. Purchased by the Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company in 1900, the island then became a tourist resort which lasted into the 1950s, when its pristine pine forests were logged. Grand Island then declined into a wilderness again. Today it is a National Recreation Area, its nature being preserved. I first came to Grand Island when I was five years old, my family having been invited by close friends who own one of the two lighthouses. From then on I have spent almost every summer on the island in cottages without electricity and running water. During these years I heard many stories about the island which I finally decided to compile into a book. They vary from a mysterious lighthouse murder to the thrill of bear encounters, to rescue missions on Lake Superior and some islanders’ tall tales, along with a closer look at Grand Island’s history and the fascination of exploring the island for remnants of its past. The Foreword is written by Loren Graham who has told me several of these stories. He is also the author of “A Face In The Rock - The Tale Of A Grand Island Chippewa”.

In the spring of 1355 evil were spreading abroad. Tidings which you cannot bury, nor hide. News had come secretly and fleetingly to Venice that Lewis (Louis) of Hungary, who had previously looted Venetian waters, was on his way to a second invasion, and had given over the Dalmatian towns to the Ban of Bosnia to ravage. Young Zuan Gradenigo, making his way on foot from the crowded Merceria into the Piazza di San Marco, ran upon his friend, the young German captain, whom men called Il Lupo—even though his name was Wölfart—and learned, what almost every other man in the city already knew about Lewis of Hungary. The two men were standing beside one of the gayly painted booths at the foot of the great Campanile, still eagerly discussing the matter and its probable outcome, half an hour later, when a servant in the livery of the doge touched young Zuan’s arm and, in a low tone, gave him a message. Gradenigo turned back to the German. "My uncle wishes to see me at once in the palace," he said. At the head of the great stair two men were awaiting him, and they led him at once through a narrow passage with secret sliding-doors to the inner cabinet of the private apartments of the newly elected doge, his uncle, Giovanni Gradenigo. What was young Zuan tasked with? What happened next you may well ask and what adventures await young Zuan? Well you’ll have to download this book and read for yourself what lies in store for young Zuan Gradenigo and the mission he was about to be sent on. Don’t wait!
