Return to Wake Robin is a book of essays about the golden age of Wisconsin Northwoods camps and cabins during the period of the 1920s to 1960s. Author Marnie O. Mamminga takes us to Wake Robin, the cabin her grandparents built in 1929 on Big Spider Lake near Hayward, Wisconsin. Five generations of her family have enjoyed times up north and her remembrances are accompanied by many vintage family photos. This book traces the history of one resort and cabin, but provides a look at a time and experience that will resonate with anyone who has spent summers Up North, or wishes they had.
