This is a great book, not only for Wisconsin people, but for the story of geological change, in this instance quite dramatic.
The catastrophic and failure of an ice dam holding back a lake the
size of multiple counties a hundred feet deep sends water roaring down the Wisconsin River channel.
It explains how the famous Wisconsin Dells was created in a few days, and the down river landscape was changed forever.
A lot of geology isn't exciting, but this well-researched and bold story is!
