Little Wisconsin : A Nostalgic Look at Wisconsin's Smallest Communities
by Melinda Anne Roberts




Overview -

Wisconsin's smallest communities have remarkable stories.

From the Native Americans who have been here for centuries to the arrival of European immigrants and Yankee pioneer settlers, Wisconsin's history is compelling, intriguing, and unique. Little Wisconsin celebrates the Badger State's storied past by introducing 100 communities with populations around 600 or less. Melinda Anne Roberts provides an intimate look at the people and events that define every community, along with fun and fascinating facts--including the arrival of French emissary Jean Nicolet in 1634 and the state's fur-trading, logging, mining, and agricultural transitions. With full-color photographs taken by the author and a summary of what you can see and do in each community, you'll be inspired to pack your bags and head out for a visit

Little Wisconsin is for Wisconsinites proud of their state and heritage. It's also for anyone interested in history, especially the history of the Heartland--where honesty, hard work, and community values are what built and continue to sustain these rustic, rural communities.

It's one book with one hundred places to love.
