I was able to read this book in one day, and wanted more. Being a former resident of this area of Wisconsin made it even more interesting for me, but all that aside, it was one of the most intriguing books I've read in a long time. The photographs are a wonderful testament to life in that era & locale, if you're a collector of old photographs & post-mortem shots this is a great book for your library. Reading about all of the madness surrounding these people, their bizarre and sad behaviors really makes you think. The author's conclusion really draws it all together for you.

Reading this book was like watching a ten-car pile up in slow motion. At the turn of the century, the bottom dropped out of the local economy in a rural area of Wisconsin. Soon after, local newspapers that had reported nothing more exciting than hog births begin to fill up with stories about arson, murder, madness, and infanticide. Truly creepy.

I live in Jackson County, WI, and I find it strange that something as bizarre and twisted as this could actually happen in a town as small as BRF. The book was really interesting, and I know some of the people who are in the film Wisconsin Death Trip, which will be on Cinemax July 4. The book chronicles the deaths and strange occurances of Jackson country through newspaper articles and pictures.
