The Pleasure of the Sorrow
The Pleasure of the Sorrow by James A. Rhody
This historical novel tells the story of homesteading and logging camp life in the Northwoods of Wisconsin in the 1890s through a cast of characters who play their part in the history of the area. They depict the pleasures and hardships of the day, with sadness and always with humor. While the camp and characters are ficticious, the dates and details are historically accurate. The late James Rhody made his home in northern Wisconsin and was noted for his extensive historical knowledge and splendid story-telling abilities.
