'Bark River Chronicles' Book Talk in Fort Atkinson
The Bark River valley in southeastern Wisconsin is a microcosm of the state's and one of the Great Lakes region's natural and human history. "The Bark River Chronicles: Stories from a Wisconsin Watershed" reports one couple's journey by canoe from the river's headwaters to its confluence with the Rock River and several miles farther downstream to Lake Koshkonong. Along the way, it tells the stories of Ice Age glaciation, the effigy mound builders, the Black Hawk War, early settlement, the development of waterpower sites, and recent efforts to remove old dams.
Author Milton Bates will talk about the book
and his journeys along the Bark River and through its history at the Dwight Foster Library in Fort Atkinson. A book signing will follow.
