Van Shaick took portrait photographs in Black River Falls, Wisconsin, for over sixty years. In addition to the exhibit, the Wisconsin Historical Society has also published a book by the same name, People of the Big Voice, by Tom Jones, Michael Schudlach, Matthew Daniel Mason, Amy Lonetree, and George A. Greendeer, featuring this photography. The book is available for purchase from the Wisconsin Historical Society. You can also check it out from the Water Library's recent acquisitions!
