Riassunto: Wisconsin has been called the Land of Beer and Cheese, but culinary rhetoric barely scratches the surface of its bounty. It is indeed the nation s top cheese producer, but an innovative collaboration among the life sciences, education, and private sectors has enabled the state to achieve cutting-edge biotech advances with international implications, such as those of stem cell research and nanotechnology. Stellar schools and a thriving health care system not to mention the beloved Green Bay Packers simply amplify the quality of life enjoyed by Wisconsin s proud residents. All of this, nestled in some of the most beautiful terrain in the country: a national forest to the north, the mighty Mississippi River to the west, the famed Driftless Area to the southwest, the great Lake Michigan to the east, and mile upon mile of gently rolling hills and meadows in between. Money magazine agrees on Wisconsin s quality of life, naming Middleton, a city mere miles from the capital, its 2007 number-one place to live in America. Forbes magazine followed suit the same year, placing four Wisconsin cities on its 2007 list of Best Places for Business and Careers.
Wisconsin residents love the land, cherish their roots, and value hard work and progress above all. They are a friendly, welcoming, midwestern-values bunch, which makes for tight-knit neighborhoods and family-friendly communities. They are a creative, independent, think-outside-the-box sort, and this translates to a stable economy, an ever-evolving workplace culture, and endless opportunities for growth.
Wisconsin is always looking forward. Come join the movement.
L'autore: Mary Erpenbach was born in the northern Wisconsin community of Menomonie and grew up in the southern Wisconsin city of Middleton. She has lived in Green Bay and Madison and is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Madison. A former vice president of the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association, Mary has worked as a freelance writer and editor for trade publications and a variety of Wisconsin-related magazines, including Wisconsin Academy Review, Wisconsin Woman, and Midwest Express. She has been a contributing writer with Madison Magazine since 1998 and is the winner of university fiction awards and three statewide press club awards for feature writing. She is currently the director of communications for Discover Mediaworks, a national company based in Eagle River and Madison that produces the syndicated television program Discover Wisconsin.
Maggie Ginsberg-Schutz is an award-winning freelance writer and lifelong resident of the Badger State. A University of Wisconsin Madison alum, she spent the first part of her career in advertising before moving on to newspaper reporting, and now most of her work appears in glossy magazines. She has written about everything from hospice care to corn and is continually surprised and impressed by how many hidden story gems lie in her own beloved backyard.
Most of her work is done on her laptop, with one young daughter tangled in the power cord and another daughter serving as footstool. When Maggie is not writing she reads, plays wife and mother, and struggles with a fledgling running routine.
She lives just outside of one of the independent, creative, progressive Wisconsin bergs this book describes, Mount Horeb, and there s no place on earth she d rather be.
