    To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it. Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. Also, added into the Mackinac Island Adventures Booklet is local information, and enough history to help you understand the island and make your Mackinac Island Adventure full of great memories. This is a more relaxed guide book, from an island resident’s perspective on attractions, adventures off the beaten path, hidden gems and insider tips.
