My Marquette: Explore the Queen City of the North – Its History, People, and Places with Native Son Tyler R. Tichelaar


My Marquette is the result of its author’s lifelong love affair with his hometown. Join Tyler R. Tichelaar, seventh generation Marquette resident and author of The Marquette Trilogy, as he takes you on a tour of the history, people, and places of Marquette. Stories of the past and present, both true and fictional, will leave you understanding why Marquette really is “The Queen City of the North.” Along the way, Tyler will describe his own experiences growing up in Marquette, recall family and friends he knew, and give away secrets about the people behind the characters in his novels. My Marquette offers a rare insight into an author’s creation of fiction and a refreshing view of a city’s history and relevance to today. Reading My Marquette is equal to being given a personal tour by someone who knows Marquette intimately.
