Overview

Each title includes: A lively, comprehensive account of the state's past and present, Contemporary and historical photographs and maps, Chronology of major events, Famous sons and daughters, Interesting state tidbits (state symbols, state songs, and so forth), Literary extracts, Visitor resources and must-see sites, Cultural highlights and special events, Select bibliography and much more...

Starting with the days when massive glaciers covered the landscape, Van Ells brings us on a journey through the fascinating history of the Badger State. Wisconsin remembers the French voyageurs, the brutal Black Hawk War, the booming migration of thousands of settlers, its progressive political traditions, and the famous Vietnam protests at the University of Wisconsin.

Included are recommended museums, state parks, and other attractions. Birthplace of such notables as Frank Lloyd Wright and Georgia O'Keeffe, Wisconsin is a state rich in culture that easily outdoes the stereotypes of harsh winters and sprawling flat American dairy land.

About the Author:
Mark D. Van Ells is associate professor of history at Queensborough Community College in New York City
