Come on Along is written about Michigan’s Upper Peninsula but readily applies to anyone anywhere who is awed and respectful of life in the northern woods. It is not a hunting manual. It gives intimate insight into the lives of many of the animals and how they fit in the natural order. In nature, there are no laws, there are only consequences. There are humorous tales and experiences involving local people. It also speaks to the splendor of the forest and the magnificence of changing seasons of the year.   5.5 x 8.5 - 272 pages - Paperback - large print

One of the nicest books I've ever read about the U.P. There's always different ways to look at a situation - I really like Ben's way - Fred Rydholm

Excellent and very entertaining essays on the Upper Michigan wilderness, written by the master outdoors-man himself. - Jerry Harju

About The Author

Ben Mukkala was a native to Marquette Michigan, an adventurer, a storyteller and an amateur historian.
In 1950 Ben enlisted in the United States Air Force and rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant. He was then commissioned a Second Lieutenant and trained as a pilot. He enjoyed flying many aircraft and was an Aircraft Commander in the B-47 Strato-jet, the B-58 Hustler and, in fact, flew ‘most any airplane they didn’t forcibly keep him away from. He also served in the Viet Nam War as a Flight Commander flying F-4 Phantom fighter-bombers in combat. He retired in 1970 with the rank of Major.
As a civilian he continued to fly privately, commercially and Air Ambulance, sailed boats and traveled widely camping out and, later, in a motor home. He enjoyed life and shared his adventures through speaking engagements and writing. He has been published in books, flying and outdoor magazines, and several newspapers. 
Ben passed peacefully in his home with his wife Dorothy at his side in 2013. He is greatly missed by his many fans, friends and family. The legacy he left behind is still enjoyed in the books he wrote.
