Northern Reflection is a collection of wild, wacky, and nostalgic short stories based on the author Jerry Harju's childhood in Upper Michigan in the 1940's. His youthful adventures include standing on the railroad tracks to play chicken with an oncoming ore train, riding on a fire truck to a blaze at his own house, and the difficulties of picking up girls in the midst of a frigid Michigan winter.
