What a Hoot - Just Like Wisconsin Jan 16, 2003
Finally, a Wisconsin guidebook that is as much fun to read as it is practical to use. Incredibly detailed, but with a narrative that captures the true spirit of people and places in the Badger State. The chapter on Green Bay and Packer games is priceless. The author doesn't bother perpetuating all the easy stereotypes (such as cheeseheads) and instead wades neck deep into the local culture, describing the traditions of Monroe Cheese Days and Okotberfest in LaCrosse, the tranquility of the North Woods, and solitude of Door County lighthouse keepers before the days of fudge shops and boutiques.
Does Wisconsin justice. Just a great, fun read.
