New book on Wisconsin nature and history!

I enjoyed having coffee with Milton Bates a few years ago, and hearing about his work. I am glad that more people will have the chance to see Southeast Wisconsin through his eyes!

” “The Bark River Chronicles” reports one couple’s journey by canoe from the river’s headwaters to its confluence with the Rock River and several miles farther downstream to Lake Koshkonong… For the two voyageurs who paddle the length of the Bark, it is a journey of rediscovery and exploration. As they glide through marshes, woods, farmland, and cities, they acquire not only historical and environmental knowledge but also a renewed sense of the place in which they live.”
