Door County Tales: Shipwrecks, Cherries and Goats on the Roof
Or buy the eBook from one of these retailers
Befitting its role as Wisconsin's thumb, Door County has its own unique pulse. It is the idyllic paradise "north of the tension line," that sends many unsuspecting tourists spiraling into an addiction that lands them in a summer home. It is also the "Door of the Dead," which some historians blame for more shipwrecks than any other body of fresh water in the world. The variety of nature's splendors and terrors is matched by the cast of characters that has risen up among them. In Door County Tales, these characters are given free rein, which seems only proper in a place where one might walk out of a restaurant and see goats grazing on the roof.

About the author
Gayle Soucek is an author and freelance editor, with several books and numerous magazine articles to her credit, including Marshall Field's: The Store that Helped Build Chicago and Chicago Calamities: Disaster in the Windy City, both books published by The History Press. She once served as managing editor for the Chicago art and entertainment biweekly, Nightmoves. She and her photographer husband divide their time between their home in a Chicago suburb and their second home in Baileys Harbor. As a child, Gayle first discovered her latent acrophobia on a climb up Eagle Tower during a family vacation. She's pretty sure that the claw marks she left on the railings remain to this day.
