Things I do in Detroit : A Guidebook to the coolest places by the Nain Rouge
"Things I Do in Detroit: A Guidebook to the Coolest Places by The Nain Rouge" by Dave Krieger
The Nain Rouge, French for red dwarf, is a fabled gnome that has lived in Detroit before it was settled by Cadillac in 1701.
For over 300 years the Nain Rouge is reported to appear during various historical events throughout the city. Originally seen as a malevolent character in the folklore of Detroit, the Nain Rouge is actually the consummate outsider, blamed for any and all disasters in Detroit's history while being ignored for his positive contributions to the richness and development of the city.
Activities change dramatically over the centuries and every generation brings a new excitement to Detroit. With the influx of new energy, the time has come for the Nain Rouge to reclaim his standing as Detroit's honorary grand citizen, contributor, booster and as the oldest resident historian of the city.
Never to have sought credit for his contributions before, the Nain Rouge reveals himself to the public for the first time in this visually rich guide book of amazing thinks to see and do in Detroit today.
