KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a real harvest of ghost stories, Indian legend, circus yarns, proverbs, even home remedies, in a collection of Wisconsin lore which is probably one of the largest and liveliest folk lore collections in a decade. The editors with the help of historical societies, research, letters from Wisconsinites and their own memories, have assembled a barrage of stories and myths about their state. Yet, the book is not limited in regional flavor. Instead, it offers a real peek into vanishing 19th century America and into real folk temper and wit. A treasury of Americana for those young and old who wish to penetrate the true character of our country.
