Glad I Found This InI found this in box of books recently retrieved from my parents basement Read and enjoyed it as a child I really enjoyed this vintage YA book set at a camp in the North Woods by Lake Superior Though the characters and storyline were lovely my favorite part of the book was just the setting in the cool forest by the lake I love all the outdoors scenes I just felt I was right there on the lakeshore feeling the cool clean air and wading in the bracingly cold water hearing the wind blow through the evergreens sleeping in the woodsy lodge with windows overlooking the Set near Copper Bay Copper Harbor in the Lake Superior region of Michigan's Upper Peninsula Phyllis Rockfort finds adventure
