A pamphlet on farming in Northern Wisconsin, 1904

Opportunities for a man who wants a chance to start in a country where even with moderate means he can get ahead and lay up something for the future


As logging declined, land in northern Wisconsin was increasingly promoted for farming by logging companies and railroads eager to halt the exodus of people from the region. This booklet touts the agricultural opportunities in the region and includes letters from successful farmers as evidence of its possibilities.
