Comments from people who bought the books:
“I picked up a copy of your travel guide “Lansing to LeClaire” on Monday at “The Curious Cup” in Prairie du Chien and couldn’t put it down. I LOVE IT!!! I am going to recommend it to our guests at our Bed & Breakfast. The places I tell them about are in the book!!!! Your book is humorous and filled with historical events along with the current status. I have lived in the area for over 35 years and discovered I don’t know “everything” about this area. Thanks for writing this wonderful book”.

“Hey, Just found, read and finished you Lansing to Le Claire. Being a 78 year old that has followed the Mississippi, up and down, all my life, I thought I had little more to learn about the cities, villages and crossroads along the river. Not So! Absolutley loved your book. Great history, great descriptions, great humor. Just top notch! Being raised a mile from the river on the Bad Axe and living in La Crosse and Onalaska most of my life am looking forward to the Lansing to Hastings book.
Thanks for the great writing.”
–Don Staats, Onalaska, Wisconsin
