Essential book if you want to visit sacred sites in Wisconsin. It's organized by region and religion or type of site. They give brief accurate description of the location and why it is important, along with contact info. I'd especially recommend it to anyone living in Wisconsin or neighboring states. It's great for weekend road trips.

Sacred Sites of Wisconsin will remind people of childhood trips to Holy Hill or the Dickeyville Grotto. What a great opportunity to think back on churches and other places that mean so much to us. And what a great opportunity to visit them again!
