We came upon this book about the rich history of Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan, Wisconsin and discovered the story of how the resort owners sponsored several Japanese-American families out of the Minidoka internment camp during World War II and brought them to Lake Lawn. There are many other such stories in this delightful little book. If instead of reading about the more grand stories of international war and power struggles and enjoy learning the "smaller" history of local life, this book is for you. AND...it is a quick read and has lots of pictures!
Steve Brown and Mike Ullstrup write and produce many shows based on actual events in Wisconsin. Some of these stories are historical in nature and many are based on tales of haunted buildings, legendary elephants trumpeting, or clans of circus people living in cornfields. Check out these books to read some pretty interesting facts and tales about Wisconsin!
