This booklet version of the 1978 photograph and text series A Tourist's Guide to the Giant Things and Mattie Gunterman Historical Sites of La Crosse, Wisconsin harkens back to the early days of Gianthropology and crosses over to a prior research project on the life of early 20th century photographer Mattie Gunterman (1872-1945). Published as a companion volume to Gunterman's biography Flapjacks & Photographs, this 12 page photo essay traces Henri Robideau's footsteps as he searches for clues to Mattie Gunterman's childhood in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and in the process discovers the town's special relationship with Giant Things.
