Welcome to the Pine River Review. Our sight is dedicated to our little homestead located along the Pine River tucked inside the Chippewa Nature Center's 1400 Acres of wild in Michigan's lower penninsula. We love to share our pictures, video, comment, and our own homespun music. Step inside our world as we celebrate this beautiful nook!

Winter has come early and hard this December. You are looking down the frozen Detroit river, the border between Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan. A lot of good Canadian whiskey bottled right over there on your left was whisked across the river to service the black market drinkers during prohibition era America. We had a little problem called the war of 1812 as well, when this natural highway became a shared boarder between England and the USA like it was before the war of 1812. The native Americans eventually got the Casinos that dot the landscape. Its been a peaceful international border ever since!
