Detroit has a rich history—on this we can all agree.

From the economic and environmental resources provided by the Detroit river, to the first paved road in the United States, to Motown and of course, the largest municipal bankruptcy.

This is all documented, along with many other lesser known points about the city’s history, in a new book.

Paul Vachon, the author of Detroit: An Illustrated Timelinespeaks with Detroit Today producer and guest-host Jake Neher about the book and the history of Detroit.
