The spiral-bound booklet includes excerpts from two hard to find sources: the 1883 History of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Michigan, a Guide to the Wolverine State, a 1941 product of the WPA Writer's Program. The tri-color cover is printed on 80# card stock and protected with a vinyl sheet. The text is printed on 8.5" x 11" 60# opaque paper. Among the subjects included are: Delta -- Physical features; Indians; the story of Mrs. L. A. Roberts, first white lady in the county; Early Explorations; Early settlements; County organization, Escanaba (including a drawing); Chicago and North Western Railway; Ore Docks; Fishing Interests; the Press; Schools; Fire Department; Church History; Societies; Four small communities -- Masonville, Ford River, St. Martin's Island, and Deer Lake; Schoolcraft -- County organization, the communities of Manistique, Onota, and Munising; Grand Island, the Pictured Rocks; Prospects of the County. In addition to the many names mentioned throughout the booklet, there are a number of biographies of early Delta County residents.
