As a Wisconsin history junkie I found this book very satisfying. The various chapters provide the reader with just enough information to taste a piece of history throughout the state. They authors did a good job of finding information from all over Wisconsin and the length of each chapter inspired me to continually read "one more." The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because they omitted Wisconsin's "snow baby" from Sawyer County in the mid-20th century. Maybe next volume? ;)

Well written and I really enjoyed reading about the different people in this book. I learned all kinds of tidbits about so many things. As I wanted to know more regarding certain people I Just wished I didn't have to google everything I wanted to know more about. I received this book free in exchange for a honest review.

The readers' interest is piqued in this exploration of curious characters from Wisconsin and they are left to explore the stories further. The conveyance of research through a lively writing style makes it a fun, quick read. This makes a great coffee table conversation piece.
