The beautiful town of Blind River, Ontario is mentioned in the classic mystery set in the Upper Peninsula, "Blood is the Sky" by Steve Hamilton. More info here:

Oh, and listen to Neil Young's song "Long May You Run" for a tribute to Neil's days in Blind River. What can I say? There's something magic about Blind River!
