I. The Lowering of Crystal Lake,  II. The Biography of Archibald Jones

by a Humble Saunterer, Stacy Leroy Daniels

Announcing the release of the new book — "The Comedy of Crystal Lake" (2015); the unanticipated sequel to “The Tragedy of Crystal Lake” (1922). It's all about the 1873 lowering of Crystal Lake in Benzie County, Michigan, and a biography of Archibald Jones, the man behind the operation, and his Benzie County River Improvement Company.

Dr. Daniels describes the book as...

"Being a Summary Chronicle with Many More Sidelights, of a Tale written in Two Parts, describing a seemingly Ill-Fated Historical Event, so epochal in its nature as to have had a permanent bearing upon the development and future of Benzie County in Northwestern Lower Michigan, together with myriad viewpoints of its diverse characters and sundry locales and &c, &c."

Please see the About the Story for a short description and Writing of the Book for more details.
