Harrison was a long time resident of Michigan, including Leelanau County, where he knew many Anishinaabe people. He wrote a compelling introduction to the history of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, Mem-ka-Weh: The Dawning of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians.
He also wrote many Indian characters into his books. He wrote them as human beings, with all their flaws and strengths, and not as exotic others like so many writers do.
