"Patrick Livingston has written the complete book on Bob-Lo, from the well-known subjects of amusement rides and river cruises to the lesser-known tales of racism, insolvency, and rowdy motorcycle gangs. Summer Dreams is smart, informative, and a great addition to anyone's local history bookshelf." - Bill McGraw, Detroit Free Press columnist and co-editor of The Detroit Almanac"
