    Everything a true Wisconsoner wants...interesting, informative, and weird

    I read this book when I was in Middle School and I thought it was great. The book is very interesting and hard to put down. What I liked the most were the layout and the pictures. I really like the way this book is organized, more of a newspaper article style than book form. The pictures are really neat to get to see. Some of them may be a little much to see, but I think that they make the book even better! <BR/><BR/>I hate spending money and I know that I can easily get this book from the library or borrow it from my grandmother, but I like this book so much that I have decided to purchase it anyway!

    Teenage Evaluation

    This is amazing. I first caught on to the piece through the popular rock band Static X and their first recording on a major album entitled 'Wisconsin Death Trip', named after a book the frontman, Wayne Static, picked up at a flea market. As not only a 17 year old with an interest in rock music and love for the 'cooky', but a soon to be scholar attending a major California university, I give this five stars with all of my heart.

    All time favorite

    At the tender age of 11, I begged my mother to purchase this book for me at its first publishing. She was a scholarly women and felt that it would be interesting reading. I have the copy purchased in 1973 and it is threadbare. I cannot begin to estimate the number of people who have picked it out of my collection, and have not been able to put it down. Strangely enough, I married a man from Black River Falls. He has recently stumbled upon the copy and is ordering copies for his family. I found it very peculiar that this book was not discussed in his hometown, nor in his studies. It is a fascinating read.

    Creepy Coffee Table Book

    I grew up perusing this book as a child in Baraboo, Wisconsin. I was thrilled to find it back in print and am eagerly awaiting a video release of the movie. This book shoots large holes in the so-called 'Good old Days'. Some pictures are disturbing and can be upsetting, but the work as a whole is so evocative of an era of history that gets a white wash in history books. Things were not good or easy in those days and especially amongst the denizens of Black River Falls.

    You won't forget it

    Keith Phipps review says it accurately. This is a fascinating trip through a landscape of sickness, weirdness, and death... The subjects in the photos look back at the camera and offer a frozen moment of the shadowy side of America that has apparently always been with us. Overall conclusion, no matter what the newspapers present as the latest modern horror, things really are better than they used to be.
