|In Places I Hide, writer and photographer Pete Wurdock takes the reader on an intimate and bracing sojourn through the largely untrammeled beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. He combines a poetic sensitivity with an eagle’s eye for sights that can only be found off the beaten path. The words make the reader feel like they've been where he’s been and feel they’re a part of the lives of the people and stories woven in verse.
Places I Hide takes you from the rumble of Tahquamenon Falls to the soft tranquility on and around Muskallonge Lake in Luce County. It explores the many faces and wide grandeur of Lake Superior and quiet beauty near Newberry, Munising and Grand Marais. It’s a collection of photography and poetry that offer an uncommon combination of beauty and emotion, using nature as a backdrop. This is a book that shows you why you love, or miss, or want to make sure you visit the Upper Peninsula.
Places I Hide is released on the Detroit imprint Ridgeway Press, 72 pages, full color. Marketed and distributed through Vacation Publishing.

Between the Cottages is Wurdock’s up-close
exploration of the quaint beauty still found in and
around Lake Delavan. Although his photographs

America’s Heartland, Wurdock arrives at small
universal conclusions about what makes life in
the slow lane worth living.
