Te contamos un poco sobre el libro:
Waukesha county is located in the southeastern part of Wisconsin. It is bordered on the east by Milwaukee county, which separates it from the shore of Lake Michigan. South of it are Racine, Kenosha and Walworth counties, between it and the northern boundary of Illinois; to the west of it is Jefferson county, and north of it the counties of Dodge and Washington.<br><br>A recent description of the topography of this beautiful county describes it as “composed of prairies, oak openings, small marshes, almost innumerable lakes and small hills. The openings and prairies are rich, productive and valuable lands. The natural resources of the county are. as varied as they are extensive, while its natural beauties would seem to be unsurpassed.” It is for its beautiful lakes that this attractive county is chiefly renowned. Most of these are located in its northwestern part. Here, in the townships of Oconomowoc, Merton, Summit and Delafield are located nine large and fifteen small lakes. The group of lakes about Oconomowoc “lies in a belt of terminal moraines and out-wash plains. The outwash plains contain many pots or kettles, formed by the melting of buried ice-blocks, and some of the lake basins are of the same origin.” Another group of lakes, Big and Little Muskego and Denoon, in the southeastern corner of the county, do not equal the foregoing in beauty of shoreline. Muskego lake is a broad, shallow body of water, surrounded by large swamps. Three other lakes, of medium size, are Howitt, Phantom and Eagle, located near the county line, in the southwestern corner.
