From the Dust Jacket: Once called the qManufacturing and Jobbing Center of Northern Michigan, q Saginaw County continues to shine as a key player in the state's economy. It's a major agricultural center and ground zero for two of Michigan's most important cash crops: dry beans and sugarbeets. Saginaw is a center for automotive research and production-which is still, far and away, the country's largest employer. The area is home to manufacturers of everything from silicon chips to surgical tools. Author Greg Branch, creative director at Princing a Ewend, a Saginaw-based advertising and communications firm, takes the reader on a captivating tour of Saginaw, an area with a rich heritage and a prosperous future. The images of photographer Gary C Bublitz add sparkling color and texture to the insightful narrative. Then, in Part II of the book, the writers at Princing a Ewend take readers behind the scenes with profiles of the area's leading entrepreneurs and businesses. Three hours out of Mackinaw City. Two hours north of Detroit. The middle of the mitten. Where many waters meet to form one great horizon. Where many industries meet to forge a strong and diverse economy. Where many lives meet to build a great community. That's Saginaw County.
