The final reading today from Chapter One of Sumner Matteson’s wonderful book, Afield,  Portraits of Wisconsin Naturalists, Empowering Leopold’s Legacy;  Volume One

We follow Increase Lapham during 10 days in the Penokee Iron Range, on foot, surveying for ore, his observations on Madeline Island, and then to Oconomowoc Lake, where he bought land (“Minnewoc”) for his family.
