    One thought on “Cream City Chronicles: Stories of Milwaukee’s Past”

    1. I received a copy of this for free through First ReadsI found this pretty fascinating. I have never been to Milwaukee, nor do I really know anything about it, but I feel as if I do now. It really made me want to visit and see all the things the author talks about.

    2. Excellent. Five dozen anecdotes about Milwaukee people, buildings, neighborhoods and culture. Five dozen perfect essays, each one beginning with a scene-setting introduction, expanding into the interesting story then wrapping up with a conclusive summary. Although I read it front-to-back, you can start anywhere in this collection of self-contained stories. John Gurda covers Milwaukee's seasons, celebrations, early years, water and a sense of place here. In my favorite section, he discusses the c [...]

    3. What a wonderful walk through Milwaukee history. Turns out that I went to school with John and his brother Paul as I discovered in the preface. We both have memories in common: The same Sister Josetta, the Sears parking tower man, the same library on Forest Home. Amazing. But that's not why I gave this book top rating; it's because the history was made so "readable". It has a conversational style, and interesting arrangement of eras and topics. John did occasionally struggle with coming up with [...]

    4. Love this book by John Gurda! This book is a quick and fun read. It is made up of 63 interesting stories about historical events and people who have made Milwaukee what it is.It was as if I was listening to a family member tell me stories of our families past, Gurda writes just like that. He adds in his personal stories and feelings about the importance of knowing about the past. I can't wait to hunt out some of the landmarks and areas he talked about that are still around today.

    5. Easily one of the best Milwaukee books I've ever read. An extremely enjoyable read given that each story is so short. Expanded my knowledge of the city greatly by making me aware of many pieces of Milwaukee history that I wouldn't have otherwise encountered.

    6. Well written, historically accurate, short chapters make for fast reading. There's a lot of personal commentary that doesn't really add to the stories, but a lot of good information and wonderful photographs.
