Big Spider Lake:
For a lot of midwesterners, summer is the time to head “Up North” to a lakefront cabin or camp on one of Wisconsin’s pristine northwoods lakes. For five generations, commentator Marnie Mamminga and her family have returned to Big Spider Lake near Hayward – to the cabin her grandparents built. It’s a place that holds a lot of history.
Marnie Mamminga has just written a memoir about the place – called “Return to Wake Robin: One Cabin in the Heyday of Northwoods Resorts.”
