A great read! Entertaining story set in Birmingham MI. Great coming of age story…classic 70’s! Really captures the family dynamics of that generation!
The Nutroom Trip:
A Journey into the Coming Age
Set in post-Vietnam War America at the height of the hippie, free love and drug era, seven teenagers, yearning adulthood, embark on a trip. Prior to and during the journey the boys encounter events that test their maturity and inner strength.
The trip takes them deep into the northern Michigan wilderness 200 miles from home, traveling by hitch-hiking, walking, biking, and canoeing. Once they arrive, the adventure continues as they experience a 3000-acre isolated wilderness, unsupervised.
True Story, 1970’s, a much different America. A group of teenagers take advantage of limited parental supervision and head into the wilderness on their terms.
Michael Cass resides in Michigan with his family. Michael has lived abroad for several years in the past but prefers his native Michigan roots. He is an avid outdoors-man and is especially inspired when fishing in the trout streams found throughout the state.
Michael is most enthused when writing about his vast experiences growing up. His next work is due out in 2021 featuring an adventuresome summer spent on Mackinac Island.
