Format: Paperback
One of the joys of being a book reviewer is discovering and reviewing the occasional title that directly relates to one's own life. ROUTE OF THE NORTH WOODS HIAWATHA: THE MILWAUKEE ROAD'S WISCONSIN VALLEY LINE is one such item. It depicts and describes the freight and passenger trains that chugged through the author's backyard - more or less! - back in the "olden days." Having a love of bygone train days, finding Thomas Burg and Bob Storzuk's book was a treat twice over.

The Wisconsin Valley Line existed, in various forms and permutations, from the early 1870s to the mid 1980s. It ran from New Lisbon, Wisconsin northward through Mosinee - my hometown - to Blue Bill, Michigan. Hauling timber harvested from Wisconsin's vast forests along with freight and passengers, the Wisconsin Valley Line played a major role in Wisconsin's economy, history and development.

Burg and Storozuk's book runs to 113 pages and features over 200 well-captioned photographs of locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars, train crews, repair crews, RR depots, accidents, lumber mills, etc. The pix were drawn from the archives of the Milwaukee Road Historical Association, Marathon County Historical Society and private collections. Paging through the book brought back childhood memories of mighty passenger trains and picturesque depots.

Railroad, lumbering and local history buffs will enjoy this well-done history of the Wisconsin Valley Line. Recommended.

I personally have never read this book. I have no desire to learn about trains and the like. My husband on the other hand is a train NUT! He has read this book over and over and over and over and over! He loves it!

I do like the pictures :)
