Vacations once meant plunging into an environment different from everyday life. A vacation “up North” for Wisconsin city dwellers meant roughing it a little, not recreating he alleged comforts of home in time-share McMansions complete with wi-fi. Return to Wake Robin looks back on those days and focuses on sites along Big Spider Lake in Hayward, the rustic resort called Moody's Camp and a private summer cabin, Wake Robin. The author, grand daughter of the cabin's original owners, has preserved Wake Robin as a remnant of an age before jet skis when vacationing meant the simpler pleasures of peace, quiet and an outboard motor.
