Breathing Lake Superior

Breathing Lake Superior
$19.95
A novel steeped in the air and water and people of the rural Midwest

Overcome with grief following the death of his youngest child, Cal Franklin uproots his wife and teenaged children to a ramshackle subsistence farm in far northern Wisconsin. Withdrawn and estranged from all they know, JJ and her stepbrother, John, struggle to adapt to life off the grid and to Cal's increasingly erratic behavior. Without electricity or even running water, the family suffers a series of calamities until Cal feels a call to preach. He builds a small log church on the property, and his unconventional message soon attracts a following. When elderly locals profess to be healed by the touch of Cal's hands, word spreads, and desperate people descend on the church from across the country. Though overwhelmed and doubtful of his powers, in a final act of love and faith, Cal seeks to raise his young son from the dead.

Narrated by Cal's stepson, John-named for "the chronicler of Christ's miracles"-Breathing Lake Superior is a poignant exploration of the mystic borderland where the mental strain of overwhelming grief becomes entangled with the promise and hope of ecstatic faith.

Our Kitchen Cookbook

Our Kitchen Cookbook
$10.00

Some time ago, many persons in both the University and the Oshkosh community generously gave their time and energy to collect recipes to create the “Our Kitchen Cookbook.” This beautiful spiral bound cookbook features 462 recipes. Each recipe features the donors’ names, where available, and may include the ethnic origin of the recipe so you can easily locate select origins or friends and neighbors who may have submitted a recipe.
Some recipes are spicy, some are bold, and some are family secrets from times of old. Each recipe has its own unique blend of ingredients, setting it apart from all other recipes. Similarly, the Division of Academic Support of Inclusive Excellence is a recipe of diversity, a unique blend of individuals from different backgrounds and various walks of life. By reading through the recipes in this cookbook, you are not only looking through a blend of recipes, but through an entire world of individuals.
The recipes in this cookbook therefore are a lot like people; each one has its own personality, ingredients and characteristics. It seems only fitting, then, that the Division of Academic Support of Inclusive Excellence, a gathering of worldwide people, gathers and publishes a collection of recipes from around the world.

Wicked Fox Cities: The Dark Side of the Valley

Wicked Fox Cities: The Dark Side of the Valley
$19.99
Visit the wicked Fox Cities, full of place names like La Grand Butte des Morts (the Big Hill of the Dead") and Winneconne ("the Place of Skulls") that date from an era when "settlement" was frequently synonymous with "slaughter." Even after the firm establishment of modern civilization, there remained an uneasy truce between lined pockets and bared knuckles that was often only brokered by heavy drinking. Stumble across the frozen Fox River and barge into local watering holes, where the only pauses in the revelry are discussions about desecrating Joe McCarthy's grave. Points of interest include the Oshkosh rat-betting scene, the Appleton "Union Street Resorts" and the Neenah tavern, where a world-champion boxer hid from the doctor who had bought his bones."

Winnebago County Beer: A Heady History

Winnebago County Beer: A Heady History
$21.99

Winnebago County has long been a bellwether of Wisconsin beer making.


In the mid-1800s, German immigrants launched small breweries in Butte des Morts, Menasha, Neenah, Oshkosh and Winneconne. By the 1950s, breweries such as Walter Brothers, Peoples and the Oshkosh Brewing Company had a combined output of more than 100,000 barrels of beer annually, and iconic brands like Gem Pilsener and Chief Oshkosh were known across the state. This rich tradition continues today with the rise of modern craft breweries in Omro, Oshkosh and Neenah. Local author and founder of the Oshkosh Beer website Lee Reiherzer reveals stories behind the breweries, past and present, that fostered an enduring beer culture.
