Here we go — getting the hang of the video updates.

Video Update 4 — Michael Hatt

Michael is the host of this year’s Dum Dum, and is the author of Tarzan Slept Here.  We are in Coldwater Michigan, where, ofr over two decades, “small town” of Coldwater provided a “big city” getaway for  Edgar Rice Burroughs.  Michael’s book Tarzan Slept Here details the author’s time spent in Coldwater, the summer home to his wife’s family, the Hulberts.  A pair of Burroughs’ well-known works were penned in Coldwater: “Beyond Thirty” was imagined at Sunnyside Farm; and the fourth chapter of “Jungle Tales of Tarzan” was written while overlooking Morrison Lake.
