Michigan is bounded by Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, Ohio, Indiana, Lake Michigan and Wisconsin; gross area, 57,980 sq. miles; land area, 57,480 sq. miles; water area, 500 sq. miles; capital, Lansing.
     The State is divided by the Great Lakes into two peninsulas, the lower of which occupies nearly two-thirds of the land area. The surface of the Southern peninsula is generally level while the Northern is rocky and mountainous. There are numerous lakes in both peninsulas, and the coast is much indented. The soil is very fertile in the South, and is especially adapted to fruit and berry growing.
     The principal farm crops are corn, hay, oats, wheat, potatoes, barley, rye and buckwheat. Among the fruits are grapes, cranberries, cherries, strawberries, apples, pears, peaches and plums.
