    Wisconsin History Through the Eyes of Real People

    Beautiful, full-color photographs capture the spirit of the February and March 2011 protests. Individual protestors in the essays, young and old, employed and unemployed, union and non-union, tell their stories about why they felt they had to add their voices to the movement, in a calm and rational manner.

    The photography alone would tell the story of the late-winter, early-spring protests against Governor Scott Walker's "Budget Repair Bill", but the 19 essays about individuals who were there bring it home in a way that is not overtly political, but personal, caring, and thought-provoking.
