Book Description:

Early days in Price and Taylor Counties, in north central Wisconsin, are recalled in this New 20 page 8 1/2" x 11" spiral-bound booklet, printed single-sided on 60 # opaque paper. The front cover is a parchtex card stock, protected with a vinyl sheet. The information comes from a rare 1881 book, entitled History of Northern Wisconsin.
