From mining to logging to farming, Finns played an important role in the early development of Wisconsin. Although their immigration to the state came later than that of most other groups, their contributions proved just as significant. This book traces the history of Finnish settlement in Wisconsin, from the large concentrations of Finns in the northern region, to the smaller "Little Finlands" created in other areas of the state. Supplemented by photographs from the Wisconsin Historical Society's collection, this is an ideal source for those who wish to learn more about Wisconsin's Finnish settlers.
