5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must' for all Wisconsin school and community library collections. 1 Dec 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
Wisconsin is popularly known as the Badger State. It also has a checkered history of eccentrics, paranormal events, oddities, and the macabre. That's just what Linda S. Godfrey (writer, illustrator, and paranormal investigator) has collected, illustrated, and documented in the pages of "Strange Wisconsin: More Badger State Weirdness". This 200 page compendium is a showcase of bizarre stories ranging from pig men, to trolls, to pancakes from space, to the Mormon King of Voree! Profusely illustrated throughout, the text is organized geographically and alphabetically from Abbotsford to the Wisconsin Dells. Offering the reader a unique and phenomenal perspective showcasing all manner of oddities, "Strange Wisconsin" is thoroughly entertaining, occasionally iconoclastic, and highly recommended as a 'must' for all Wisconsin school and community library collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Linda Godfrey scores another perfect Fortean hit! 28 Feb 2008
By Barton M. Nunnelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
Linda Godfrey's books never fail to entertain. Her latest literary effort, 'Strange Wisconsin', is certainly no exception. Packed from cover to cover with delightfully curious and unusual information, 'Strange Wisconsin' serves up the most thorough and comprehensive examination of weirdness ever compiled on the Badger State. Ancient puzzles, roadside wonders, local folklore, bizarre natives, haunted houses, inns and taverns, UFO's - can all be found inside this book - and much more. It also offers the reader a veritable menagerie of curious monsters to contemplate; Pig-men and Man-Bats, Lizard -Men and werewolves. Not to mention Bigfoot. Godfrey, the First Lady of Forteana, relies on a stunning array of visual aides to help tell the stories in this one. Hundreds of beautiful color photographs accompany the text, as well as dozens of first-class, lavish illustrations - many by the author herself - which make this book a rousing feast for the eyes as well as the imagination. 'Strange Wisconsin' was simply a joy to read and a must have addition to all Fortean libraries. I highly recommend this book for paranormal fans in every state. 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars bountiful 24 Nov 2013
By D. Ball - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very enjoyable writing style, with a larger format and bounty of artwork not often found in these sort of books. A cornecopia of legends and eyewitness accounts makes for an eerie armchair roadtrip, though you'll want a map handy unless you happen to hail from Wisc. Something for everyone!
5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book! 27 May 2014
By Mary Sutherland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
We use this book all the time at the Sci Fi Cafe to direct our customers for day trips exploring some of Wisconsin strangeness. We sell them at the cafe and can't keep them in stock they are so popular. We also use the book for day tripping!
