Drift back to an era when the speed limit in Milwaukee was an edgy four miles per hour and Madison lawmakers could poke at hogs to punctuate the tedium of legislative sessions.

Martin Hintz makes even the slow times of the Badger State fly by in this collection of Wisconsins forgotten memories. Taste the worlds first batch of pink lemonade (made with the dye of a circus performers pants) and witness the tragic death of the worlds last wild passenger pigeon. Track down ancient Algonkin legends like the great serpent that swam up the Mississippi looking for copper, and drop in on modern legends like Les Paul, whose guitar spun records into gold.
