Introducing American Getaway: 100 Years of Saints and Sinners at Camp Wandawega, Wisconsin

INDIANS. BOOTLEGGERS. A SWEDISH MADAM. THE FEDS. A MURDERER ON THE LAM. REFUGEE PRIESTS. THE GHOST OF THE LAKE. KIDS IN CANOES. A RUSSIAN GANGSTER. AND A CHEEKY RACOON NAMED GEORGE. This is the very strange, very true story of Camp Wandawega, An American Getaway.

I am thrilled to finally be able to see this project come to life in print: American Getaway was a collaborative research, writing, and historical fact-checking endeavor over a year in the making. 

You can learn more about the extraordinary true history of Camp Wandawega and the extraordinary couple who is keeping such a special plot of Americana alive here.

Read the whole, rambling story of American Getaway for yourself here.
