“A dusty pickup truck rolled along the black ribbon of asphalt that weaved and twisted through the rolling, spruce-covered hills along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Not a heavily populated area of the country, it is possible for one to drive many miles without seeing any signs of habitation. The only indicators announcing the approach to one of the small communities, which dot the rim of the lake, are the road signs warning motorists of a reduction in the speed limit.” --Cosimo Filane
