"After visiting Dickeyville Grotto as a child, I have never quite been the same. This amazing midwestern grotto is simply too bizarre not to leave its mark, and this book captures the story of its birth. There could be more images and a little fresher of images as well, they look a bit dated, however, there is a wealth of knowledge about the Midwestern grotto tradition in this book as well as enough images to pique your curiosity. Personally I would head to Wisconsin and check the grotto out for myself, but if you can't make it, the book's a nice stand in."
