      By Dennis McCann


      From portraits of significant and national figures like Robert and Belle La Follette, Golda Meir, and Edna Ferber, to stories of important events like the Black Hawk War, 1960's campus protests, and oleo smuggling, these engaging vignettes take readers on a fun and informative ride all across the Badger State.


      Where was Calvin Coolidge’s summer White House? What was the "anti-corset resolution”? And why was a cow named Ollie milked on an airplane? Award-winning newspaper columnist Dennis McCann’s talent for distilling complex subjects into brief stories pack a punch and answers the question "What makes Wisconsin, Wisconsin?”
