The Way We Worked
The Way We Worked by various local authors and compiled by the Price County Historical Society
After the success of Price County Stories, this book originated from a Wisconsin Council of Local History project. The stories contained within these pages are again from local authors, and they span roughly the time from the Great Depression to post World War II. They are an exceptional depiction of the way work was done to sustain life at a time when modern conveniences were not the norm. Tales of manual labor, sacrifice, hardships, and resourcefulness give a glimpse of the heart of the people who came to put their mark on the land and built not only a life for themselves, but a community.
