Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born and bred "Cheesehead" Thomas Huhti offers an insiders view of Wisconsin, from the bars and pubs of Madison to the beaches and water parks of the Wisconsin Dells. Huhti is a perfect tour guide, providing unique trip ideas such as Wisconsin Outdoors Adventure and the Frank Lloyd Wright Tour. Packed with information on dining, transportation, and accommodations, this handbook has lots of options for a range of travel budgets. With advice on dining in Milwaukee and exploring the scenic lakeside towns of Door County, Moon Wisconsin gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.

About the Author

Thomas Huhti is a native Cheesehead who wound up studying in China during university—itchy feet and wanderlust have been a familial curse—which ultimately led to a five-year stint traveling the globe and living out of a backpack. A fortuitous meeting with a travel scribe on a Chinese mountain opened the then-young punks eyes quite wide to the possibilities of combining travel and writing—his two loves—as a career.

Half a decade wandering the world made him long for (and intrigued by) his birthplace, about which, sadly, he realized he knew precious little. Ultimately, he discovered he bled Badger red and understood where "home" was.

Moon took him on, and thus began a four-year pilgrimage around the state to research the first edition of Moon Wisconsin—done as a gift to his parents, worthy Badgers both.

Now its a fascinating blast for Thomas just to get deeper and deeper into the place, a lifelong labor of love (at least outside of deadline crunch times). With his navigator-partner, Yuki, and his bigheaded yellow lab, Bobo, fighting over who gets to ride shotgun, the tent drying in the back of the car, and a Brewers game on the radio, Thomas can be found looking for yet another lake for the pooch to splash in while he unloads his camera gear and notebook.
