Jerry Harju's third book, "Northern Passages," is another hilarious helping of a boy growing up in Upper Michigan in the late '30's and 40's. The short stories range from his first day at kindergarten to high school prom night. One tale deals with life in Hot Springs, Arkansas where our hero faces the danger of playing football in a school where he's the only Yankee. Other topics range from the perils of recital piano playing to the terrors of Lutheran confirmation.

"...He has captured the mood of that time and era in all its romantic nonsense and robust humor." -- The Alpena, Michigan News

"I grew up in the city, but thanks to Jerry Harju's colorful, vivid, entertaining essays, I can grow up in the country too." -- Gene Perret, Three-Time Emmy-Award-Winning Writer and Writing Supervisor for Bob Hope
