This anthology of Wisconsin writers was published as a fundraiser for the nonprofit group "1000 Friends of Wisconsin" to help them celebrate the state's sesquicentenary in 1998.

This anthology of nearly fifty short essays by Wisconsin writers explores a personal sense of place. Wonderfully wide-ranging yet united by a common theme, the chapters include both intimate contemplations of lakes or gardens and big-picture overviews of science, politics, and land use. Whether outdoor writers, journalists, storytellers, farmers, social commentators, spiritual leaders, scientists, or conservation activists, the contributors ask, What gives us a sense of place? What make a place worthy of protection and respect? What binds us to places that somehow touch our minds, hearts, and souls?

A Place to Which We Belong is a treasure for Wisconsinites, not only as a tribute to our varied landscapes, but also as a celebration of Wisconsin writers. The voices here include such popular and familar names as Gaylord Nelson, Dennis Boyer, Justin Isherwood, Ben Logan, Bill Stokes, Susan Lampert Smith, Dennis McCann, Nina Leopold Bradley, Jerry Apps, Patrick Durkin, Warren Nelson, Howard Mead, George Hesselberg, Millie Stanley, John Bates, Steve Born, Edward Benton Banai, John Gurda, and such treasured voices of the past as George Vukelich and August Derleth.

6 x 9 paperback, 144 pp.
