Title says it all.Basically, when the mine shut down in Black River Falls, the town became a mix of American Horror Story and the backstory to Stephen King's It.Murder, insanity, crime,suicide,starvation, and monster sightings chronicled in newspaper clippings and some eyewitness accounts.It is beyond me how the events that transpired over the period covered in the book are not well known.Best read in small amounts at a time.No joke.The bleak tone and surreal events take a toll.

This book hadn't been available for years and finally was published again. If you ever wondered if "the good old days" were so great, this book shows you how tough you had to be to even live past childhood. Sad,but beautifully written and the photos draw you in to their misery.

for the more morbid among us

Ah, the Good Old Days! that time when the men and women were wrapped like a warm blanket in Christian piety. When boys and girls grew up straight and tall, amid swimming holes and Sunday schools, and read aloud in the public schools from the Protestant Bible. When men bore the guns that kept us free on their broad shoulders, and women were demure, graceful, with chaste and untroubled souls.
This remarkable collection of photographs --- many depicting funerals and similarly mournful scenes --- and the accompanying anthology of ephemeral journalism will go a long way towards showing that this, like any other lost Eden, never really existed. These people had other virtues, of course: they lived in the presence of death; they cultivated a sort of stoicism in the face of hard lives made harder by the rise of national capitalism.
It seems that people in rural Wisconsin were heirs to the same failures that all flesh is heir to. People committed adultery back then, and bore children out of wedlock. People went mad back then, and often expressed their madness in violence. There was drunkenness, grinding loneliness, indifference to neighbours, and murder. They coped with problems, too, that we have managed to conquer: most notably, epidemic disease, and wholly inadequte health care. It is good to remember this when this period is portrayed as a golden age of piety and patriotism.

Bought this years ago at a tag sale and then lost track of it. Fascinating record of brutal and weird crimes committed in Wisconsin in late 1800's into early 1900's. Actually kind of timely,as human behavior is universal.

Wife loved it.
As advertised
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.
