Book Description: Vintage Views Along the West Pike:From Sand Trails to US-31 is a pictorial history of Michigan's most famous road. The historic West Michigan Pike, originally M-11, was the first continuous, improved road between Michigan City and Mackinaw City. This route along the Lake Michigan coast opened West Michigan to automobile travel and tourism. The book depicts the adventure and romance of motoring on Michigan s most prominent early highway. Vintage postcards, photographs, maps, and ephemera illustrate this journey as you time-travel through the beautiful West Michigan landscape and quaint towns to hotels and cabins, tourist camps and state parks, and other stops along the road.
