Wisconsin Death Trip

Show Synopsis

First published in 1973, this remarkable book about life in a small, turn-of-the-century Wisconsin town has become a cult classic. Lesy has collected photos taken between 1890 and 1910 by a Black River Falls photographer, Charles Van Schaik, and juxtaposed them against newspaper accounts and state asylum and police records.

One Of My Favorite Books!!! :)

this book takes you back to the 1800's in Wisconsin,...... info. is taken from local newspapers, and first hand resources! Some stories are tragic, others will make you laugh so hard that you'll cry!!! This book was originally recommended to me by a librarian in Illinois, and she was soooo right!!!! This book is a true treasure!...and is eye opening!!!!....I loved it so much!!! I just had to have it!!!! My original copy is lost!!! getting another copy, was a no brainer!!! :)
