1 Metz, James I.; Editor. Prairie, Pines, and People: Winnebago County in a New Perspective.
Oshkosh, Wisconsin: Oshkosh Northwestern Co., (1976). First Edition. 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters & illus., [xiv] + 404 pp. Very Good, with light edgewear. From Preface: History is not, as many seem to believe, something that happened some place else. There is no need to journey far to gaze over the same vistas that beckoned the fabled adventurous pioneers to the West. They are about you. Personalities larger than life did not exist only in romanticized tales of the wild West of the 1870s and 80s. They were here in the 1830s, and for decades before and after; before by a hundred years, in fact, the white man's probing of the Rockies. They lie amouldering in Winnebago County soil, many of them. The two hundredth anniversary of the birth of the United States is an appropriate time to take stock of what has gone before...

3 Schreiber, Edward and Lois. Fish Creek Voices: An Oral History of A Door County Village.
Ellison Bay, Wisconsin: Wm Caxton Ltd., (1990). First Edition. 
Signed by Edward Schreiber. Octavo, softbound (stiff yellow, b&w photo illus. wrappers), 282 pp. Fine (As New). From lower cover: Fish Creek Voices is an oral history of life in Fish Creek, Wisconsin, a small town in the northern part of the Door County Peninsula. Told by long-time members of that community, it has been a labor of love for Edward and Lois Schreiber and for a veritable army of other people who have written chapters, provided photos, made drawings, read drafts, and designed and corrected various parts and versions of the book. The project originated as an informal impulse to record the shared experiences and sense of community of people who have lived in and around Fish Creek for most (or all) of their lives. It became a community project, and that by itself says something about the village and the way of life that is documented here.
