Nice clean book with no names or writing other than SIGNATURE (without inscription) by author who signed on the title page. Like many old amusement parks which entertained generations of families, Chippewa Lake Park is no longer the focus of summer fun. But this appreciative history provides those who loved it, lived in the shadow of its ferris wheel, or remember the stories of past good times, will enjoy the large and plentiful vintage photographs as well as the massive amount of information about the park from its beginning through its glory days, to its ultimate demise. The author, a Medina County, Ohio historian, offers historical data on the start of the park, the village of Chippewa Lake which surrounded it, and one chapter apiece on the decades from 1900 to the 1970's. She also devotes an entire chapter to its end. There are also several appendices which offer info on park security, boats at the park (park was located right on the edge of Chippewa Lake); Jungle Larry and Safari Jane at Safari Land; a1930's cottage directory; a list of bands that played the grand ballroom; and a list of company picnics. 156 pages.
