Ernest Hemingway: Life in Michigan
Through family photos and interviews with members of Hemingway's own family, Ernest Hemingway: Life is Michigan takes a closer look at "Ernie," a young boy from Oak Park, Illinois, spending his boyhood summers with his family at their cottage in Northern Michigan.  Years later, Ernest Hemingway would incorporate these memories from the area into a collection of fictional stories about a boy named "Nick Adams," who loved hunting, fishing, and friends in places like Petoskey and Horton Bay.
