    One thought on “Heikki Heikkinen and Other Stories of Upper Peninsula Finns”

    1. I enjoyed this latest installment in Lauri Anderson's Yooper Finn collection. The stories about Heikki's misadventures are very familiar to me, having grown up with uncles of the same temperament and told similar tall tales. It brought back my childhood, listening to my uncles try to out whopper each other with their stories of growing up in the Keewenaw.
