"In a very real sense, history is just stories about people. This marvelous book uses stories about people -- where they came from, what they believed in, what they dreamed of, and especially what kind of homes they built -- to present a compelling history of a special part of America. From a quirky octagon of the 1850s to an Art Moderne marvel of the 1930s, the houses on these pages remind us of the richness of Wisconsin’s heritage -- and the importance of keeping it intact and alive." - Richard Moe, President, National Trust for Historic Preservation

"'Wisconsin's Own: Twenty Remarkable Homes' is so visually and intellectually stunning that you can forget the iPad or Kindle. You'll want to hold this exhaustively researched book in your hands. It's easy to lose hours savoring the photos, detailed historic images and informative text. Many people think the state's architectural legacy begins and ends with Frank Lloyd Wright. Milwaukee architects-cum-authors M. Caren Connolly and Louis Wasserman prove them wrong. They studied 1,500 residences to produce this private tour of the state's 20 most architecturally and historically significant homes. The pedigrees of these homes - built between 1854 and 1939 - derive from the industrial magnates and celebrities who once owned them. A must-see for lovers of historic homes." - Mary Van de Kamp Nohl, "Milwaukee Magazine"

M. Caren Connelly and Louis Wasserman have collaborated in their Milwaukee architectural practice for more than twenty years. "Wisconsin's Own" is their fourth joint book on residential architecture. Their three previous books are "Updating Classic America: Bungalows," "Updating Classic America: Ranches," and "Cottage."

Zane Williams has been a professional location photographer for four decades with wide-ranging assignments both abroad and in his home state. His recent book projects include "Wisconsin," "Doubletake: A Rephotographic Survey of Madison, Wisconsin," and "Madison."
