PDF file, full title: The Orthoptera of Michigan — Biology, Keys, and Descriptions of Grasshoppers, Katydids, and Crickets.

I only see the Acrididae in that link--needs investigation. Color photos of each genus in that volume. Apparently the PDF is only part of the whole publication--too bad.

There is supposed to be a print version, quoting from the web site:
The Orthoptera of Michigan, Biology, keys, and descriptions of grasshoppers, katydids and crickets by Roger Bland. MSU Extension Bulletin E-2815, 220 pp. ISBN - 1-56525-017-6. ordering information is online at:
This page, which was hard to find.
http://web2.msue.msu.edu/bulletins/Bulletin/PDF/E2815.pdf

PDF missing pages
The table of contents indicates that the book is >214 pages long but the PDF currently available at this URL ends at page 77

This link leads to an intact PDF: http://archive.lib.msu.edu/DMC/Ag.%20Ext.%202007-Chelsie/PDF/e2815.pdf

Book version
I can attest to the availability of a printed version, spiralbound, with exquisite photos, albeit of mounted specimens. A must-have reference for the Great Lakes region, but it is not inexpensive.

 
Yes, was going to add it
Yes, I found the info., finally, and ordered a copy for myself last night. (Price was not bad, about $30 plus shipping--reasonable, I think, for a publication with color photos.) I was going to add a separate "book" entry, but please go ahead if you would like to. I don't have it in hand yet, so can't make any comments.
