  1. I can't wait to read this! I know exactly what to get Grandma for Christmas, too!

  2. Seems to me, it's pretty much all "new" content. I never thought for a second it could be done, but I guess when you go to the WISC HIST SOC, it CAN be done! I ordered my copy the day I found out about it, so looking forward to it as well.
