Product Details
By: Donald P. Sanford

This is the story of the people, places and events that have shaped the shoreline of Lake Mendota, Madison's greatest lake, as we know it today. It is the story of Native people, settlers, iceboaters, sailors, fishers, hunters, explorers, politicians, entertainers, lifeguards, boat captains, inventors, scientists and Olympians, much of it in their own words. The first book of its kind, On Fourth Lake takes the reader on a guided tour around Lake Mendota, looking at the lakeshore from the water. It is richly illustrated with more than 500 maps, newspaper articles and photographs. Many of the images were sourced from private collections and have never before been available to the public. This book is a must-have for anyone who spends time on Lake Mendota or has an interest in the history of Madison and Dane County.
