From their website:
“For over 55 years we have been providing quality products with an emphasis on the Great Lakes Region.
Avery offers numerous nautical books that are thoroughly researched and factually true, containing Great Lakes shipwreck and lighthouse stories by several of the Great Lakes most well-known and respected historians such as Frederick Stonehouse, author of the best seller, The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald along with Wes Oleszewski and Wayne Kadar and their numerous titles.
Also, part of the book offering is storytelling at its best from Cully Gage with his growing up in the Upper Peninsula “yarns” from the early years. Laugh out loud funny has been used to describe the two offerings from Lon Emerick, You Wouldn’t Like It Here and the sequel, You Still Wouldn’t Like It Here.
A wide range of cookbooks are also offered featuring the “Life’s Little” collection of Zucchini, Rhubarb, Berry, Apple, Blueberry, Cherry and Peaches, Plums and Prunes, as well as several sure to please family style cookbooks.
Avery is well known Puzzle for its line of Great Lakes maps and charts, featuring both Lighthouses and Shipwrecks and the very popular Great Lakes nautical chart.Several of these maps and posters have been reproduced into puzzles sure to challenge the puzzle “buff.” A great addition to our puzzle line is the Northern Lights Puzzle.
