The Great Wisconsin Manhunt of 1961The Great Wisconsin Manhunt of 1961 by Marshall Cook

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very good piece of local history. The narrative voice has a pleasantly informal, storytelling air, Cook organizes his facts well, and he fits the extraordinary events of August 1961 into the ordinary flow and cycle of life and history in Sauk County.

Celebrating North Tonawanda Carrousel Animals 1883-1959Celebrating North Tonawanda Carrousel Animals 1883-1959 by Elizabeth M. Brick

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As Abraham Lincoln said, If you like this kind of thing, this is the kind of thing you'll like. I love carousels and carousel horses, so this exhibition catalogue with its excellent photography was exactly the kind of thing I like. If you, Gentle Reader, also love carousels, I highly recommend a visit to the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum in North Tonawanda, New York (website).
