Large poster-sized pictorial map of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, with parts of Lake Superior, Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. The map is decorated with dozens of illustrations, promoting the region as a tourist destination with ample recreational opportunities. It features the locations of national and state forests, game refuges, fish hatcheries, state and county parks and airports and landing fields. Interstate highways, state roads and county roads are indicated. The illustrations include a few references to the history of the region, such as a lumberjack, Native Americans in canoes, a Catholic missionary and an antique airplane. The focus, however, is on enjoyment of the outdoors: wildlife such as moose, bears, deer, and ducks, and people engaged in hunting, fishing, sailing, swimming, horseback riding, skiing, tennis, golf and so forth. Lakes are shown in blue, Upper and Lower Peninsula counties in yellow with national and state forests in green. The rest of Michigan is in purple, a small slice of Canada indicated in white.
