When The Moon Is A Silver Canoe was originally written by Captain Don Saunders in 1946. The book includes history, poetry and Indian Legends of the Wisconsin Dells. Lucky for us, local resident Bonnie Alton created a revised edition of this book that is for sale here at the library. Part of the proceeds from this book go to the Friends of the Kilbourn Public Library so stop in and grab a copy to help support the library and our local author! Copies are sold for $20.00.
