A Transplanted Yooper: Mostly True Stories of Michigan's U.P.  takes you on adventures in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula – the U.P. 


Join Tina Lonski and her family on a memorable ride across the Mackinac Bridge that joins the state’s two peninsulas. Her stories tell of bears in the yard, of ghost towns with abandoned lighthouses, and the unpredictable U.P. weather that includes mountains of snow.


The term Yooper may have started when people from the U.P. began calling themselves a U-P-er. Over time, that became the phonetic “yooper.” Whatever the origin, Yoopers live above the Mackinac Bridge that connects the two peninsulas, and the unlucky folks who live under the bridge, are “trolls.” 


The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is home to about 325,000 people, about 3 percent of the state’s population, living in about one-third of the state’s land area. It’s a rugged and wild place where rugged, hardy people live. The stories in A Transplanted Yooper reveal the wonders and magic of the U.P. and the folks who call it home.
