America's Dairyland is in distress. Its rural farms are dwindling. Join Troy Hess, rural explorer and photographer, as he travels the back roads of Wisconsin in search of these "rural ruins." In continuation of Abandoned Wisconsin: The Demise of America's Dairyland, our travels delve further into the abandonment found throughout the failed farmlands of Wisconsin.
This time around features never-before-seen imagery coalesced into chapters by type. In addition to the abandoned houses and barns, discover schools from a lost time and the churches left behind. Window shop at vacated storefronts and unearth the relics left out to rust. Through fields of the forgotten, peer into open doorways to see where the outside grows inward. Traverse the hotspots where some of these failing structures reside, including clues of where to find more. Ponder these fading remnants of yesteryear as we embark on this detour through desolation.
