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 will leave you understanding why Marquette truly is “The Queen City of the North.” Along the way, Tichelaar describes his own experiences growing up in Marquette, recalls family and friends and reveals some of the people behind his fictional characters. My Marquette offers rare insight into how an author creates fiction and provides a unique assessment of the area’s historical importance. Reading My Marquette is like taking a personal tour of Marquette with someone who knows it intimately. Over 350 images, including historic photographs, city maps, genealogy charts of several old Marquette families and Tyler's family photographs.
