Author Signing: Norbert Bufka, Good Harbor, Michigan, at Horizon Books.

Good Harbor, Michigan is about a thriving community in central Leelanau County. A lumbering town sprang up in the mid 1880’s only to die as the result of a fire. The community continued and this is their story, based on primary source material, especially the Leelanau Enterprise which began publishing its weekly paper in 1880.

Citations are included for the serious historian; the people data are a bonanza for the genealogist and family history buff. Fascinating accounts of travel, shipping, schools, churches and cemeteries in Good Harbor are presented. A list of names and birth and death dates of people interred in the four cemeteries is also part of the book.
