Wild Blueberries Ripe In Paradise - Download/Single

The Wild Blueberry Festival takes place every August on Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay in Paradise, Michigan. After the virgin forests were cleared of the majestic white pines, and following devastating wildfires, the scrub became a paradise of wild berries as part of the recovery of the land in the early 1900s. Much of Michigan's forested lands were restored by workers of the Civilian Conservation Corps, a 1930s New Deal program to provide jobs during the Great Depression.
