What you have in this book are discriminating glimpses of who and what make Wisconsin worth knowing. It is not meant to be a comprehensive travel guide that tries to please everyone or include every place with an "open" sign in the window.
Mary Bergin wrote a guide for the thoughtful traveler, willing to be sidetracked and experience something new, quirky, interesting, and unusual. Maps, road trips, lodging, restaurants, recipes, hikes, museums, taverns, tours, theaters and more. Includes index.
Wisconsin is a state of incredible diversity, transition, accomplishment and modesty. It's much more than great beer, brats, cheeseheads and polkas.

About the Author
Mary Bergin is a longtime newspaper journalist whose weekly "Roads Traveled" column is syndicated in daily newspapers around Wisconsin and online at roadstraveled.com. She also is a freelance magazine writer and former features editor for The Capital Times, Madison. She has written three books, Sidetracked in Wisconsin: A Guide for Thoughtful Travelers (ISBN 9780976145042); Hungry for Wisconsin: A Tasty Guide for Travelers (ISBN 9780981516103) and Sidetracked in the Midwest: A Green Guide for Travelers (ISBN 9780981516127.)
Although Wisconsin is her favorite place, Mary increasingly travels the world. She was a 2003 Women of Wings delegate to Chiba, Japan (a Wisconsin sister-state), and co-led a delegation of Midwest Travel Writers Association members to Korea in 2006. She has won several awards from the Society of American Travel Writers for her travel writing and photography.
She routinely seeks global connections to Wisconsin, considering it one small way to build bridges of cultural awareness and appreciation in this increasingly complex, misunderstood and troubled world.
