If you like reading about history and people who have made an impact on their community, you’ll enjoy the series Legendary Locals by Arcadia Publishing. One interesting book in the series is Legendary Locals of Grosse Pointe by Ann Marie Aliotta and Suzy Berschback.

Grosse Pointe is a rarefied suburb near Detroit on the shores of Lake St. Clair. Its first inhabitants were Native Americans, followed by the Europeans, particularly the French. In the 1920s, it became a haven for the auto barons of Detroit — the Fords, Dodges, Algers, etc. In fact, you can take a virtual tour of the some of the mansions, courtesy of the Grosse Pointe Historical Society.

Aliotta and Berschback compile an annotated pictorial history of the many interesting families of this unique community. Some of the people and families highlighted include: Jeffrey Eugenides, Edsel Ford, Charlotte Ford, Julie Harris, Edgar Louis Yaeger, Anna Thompson Dodge.
