Second edition, being a facsimile of the first from 1907. "Tamawaca Folks" was published privately by L. Frank Baum under the pen name John Estes Cooke. It is a semi-fictional, semi-factual, account of the summer community located at Macatawa Park, Michigan, where Baum purchased a summer home in 1900, with the proceeds from his first hit, Father Goose: His Book. This is the only title Baum wrote under this pseudonym.
