When you dive into the treasure trove of stories from our state, you'll find a rich collection from many traditions: Native American, French, English, Finnish, and more. 

The folktales, legends, and lore of Michigan can now be found in one book: Michigan Legends: Folktales and Lore from the Great Lakes State by Sheryl James. 

James's book includes tales about  haunted Fort Wayne, Paul Bunyan, and the Western Reserve Ghost, to name a few.
