Bill Stokes on Horicon Marsh - YouTube: ""
82-year-old Bill Stokes is Wisconsin's most famous outdoor writer. He was hired away from the Milwaukee Journal to become a columnist for the Chicago Tribune.
One of Stokes' Tribune articles told Midwest readers about the major rivers in Wisconsin, including our Rock River. He also wrote a series about paddling the Rock River from its origins north of Horicon Marsh.
Stokes told me about the trip and read from his book entitled, "The River Is Us," a collection of nature essays he wrote for the Chicago Tribune's OPED page.
