    Great Book for touring mysterious Wisconsin

    I have always liked this book. I had a copy of the first printing, but alas, lent it out one too many times. Now I have this edition, and it's just as interesting as ever. Wisconsin is a wonderful and strange place. You'll get absolutely caught up in it if you read this book. Thanks to the authors.
