I’m reading book 19 of a series of 24 . The book title is Wisconsin!. It is the Wagon’s West Series by Dana Fuller Ross from 1987. It is fiction.
The book is about how people struggled leaving the east and going by wagon train to the west and setting up there to start new lives. Wisconsin deals with the forestry business, and how German brewers have come to Wisconsin for the hops and grain to make their brew.
