About the Book
Madeline Island, in Lake Superior just off Wisconsin's North Coast, measures 14 miles long and 3 miles wide -- the largest of the Apostle Island Archipelago. Among the 22 Apostles, only Madeline has commercial development and is not part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.
From LaPointe, the island's commercial center, to Big Bay State Park and Big Bay Town Park and beyond, Madeline Island is a scenic and quirky place that begs to be explored -- as this collection of images show.
Inspired by his experiences as an exchange student on Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands, Kerry G. Hill became a journalist. After graduating from Northwestern University in 1980, he embarked on a 20-year newspaper career in Wisconsin and Illinois -- half of it as the national/international news editor of the Wisconsin State Journal, the state's second-largest daily. Today, he is in charge of communications for the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education, one of the premiere institutions in its field. In recent years, he has been gaining recognition for his photography, including two solo exhibits in Madison.
