Wisconsin Death Tripby Michael Lesy
Synopses & Reviews
A shocking portrait of a small town crumbling — socially, morally, physically and emotionally — under the impact of the great depression of the 1890s. This "cult classic" is now available again in paperback.
First published in 1973, this remarkable book about life in a small turn-of-the-century Wisconsin town has become a cult classic. Lesy has collected and arranged photographs taken between 1890 and 1910 by a Black River Falls photographer, Charles Van Schaik.
Includes bibliographical references.
