The Pere Marquette River, known to many as the P.M., is the mid-state boundary holding together the northern and southern halves of Michigan. Running for 65 miles through the Manistee National Forest, the P.M. flows from Baldwin in the east, to Ludington in the west. It is the Great Lakes State river highway where north meets south, a state of Michigan designated Blue Ribbon Trout Stream & Natural River, and a federally-designated Wild and Scenic River.
If you love canoeing and kayaking you will love your time on the P.M. A day on the river features a current with above-average speed, steering challenges through and around its fallen trees and hanging branches, gorgeous driftwood, and among its abundant wildlife are majestic blue herons flying just ahead of you. A journey down the Pere Marquette is wonderfully wide-open as the P.M. is the only major river in the Lake Michigan watershed that flows unimpeded by a dam.
The book takes you down an 8-day virtual tour of the 65 mile river, with detailed daily river maps, minutes & miles to key landmarks & each day's end point, plenty of color photos, side bars on the area history, and
directions to/info on all 18 public access points AND the 5 campsites that can be paddled up to.
Let the P.M. put an imprint on your soul,
