If you're intrigued by Native American history, before Columbus arrived, in Northern Michigan then this book is for you. A comprehensive book asking questions like; has the pure copper of Lake Superior been discovered in prehistoric cultures throughout North and South America? Some say yes, but the mystery of the origin remains unsolved. Popular literature contributes to the persistence and controversey of these "urban legends" surrounding ancient copper mining in Michigan. This scholarly book presents the evidence and myth revealed in current popular literature and discusses the pros and cons of the subject. Michigan's prehistoric mines are unique in the world and their discovery, description and explanation make for an exciting story. Having taken several family vacations the "Copper Country" in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, this information was a helpful resource for our "up north adventure". I would have liked more photographs and illustrations to keep me visually engaged.

I really wanted to read more detailed facts with more images from the ancient copper pits of the Lake Superior Basin. I am 3/4 of the way through the book and I am still waiting for the reason this "project" was titled 'Wonderful Power'. It is a technical read. I am an artist and I was expecting more written imergery. I love the book's cover, metallic copper, so cleaver! I hope it has a surprised ending!
