The section entitled "Getting to Know Wisconsinites" describes the state's festivals, actors, writers, and artists. A section on exploring Wisconsin encourages young travelers to visit pioneer villages and museums and to enjoy the state's natural beauty. The back of the book provides important dates, a glossary, interesting facts, state symbols, recipes, the state song, brief biographies of famous Wisconsinites, and a list of books, websites and addresses for more information.
