Breaking Bread in the Holyland

The "Holyland" is a region in Northern Fond du Lac and Southern Calumet Counties that was settled by Catholic Germans in the mid-1800's. The landscape boasts several small rural communities, each with a grand Catholic Church rich in history. The history of "Breaking Bread" dates back to Biblical times and has Christian significance, but it also means to "eat or dine together". The expression has also been used amongst friends, "it's hard to remain enemies when you've broken bread together". Due to the Catholic settlement in Wisconsin's Holyland, the slogan is as much of a religious connotation as it is a dinner invitation. For the pdf file of the book, please use this link
