View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In 2005, David Retzlaff bought what remained of a building that had burned down over 50 years before. Little did he realize the direction his life would take from there. What started as an interest grew to a passion, and then to what some, including him, might call an obsession. In detailed narrative, David explains thorough and meticulous research into the Stanley Toy Company, the people, and buildings surrounding the December 1949 fire which destroyed all but the brick addition to the 78 year old edifice. His eloquent prose leads the reader through the time before, during, and after the mysterious blaze. Through this book David brings to life the history of the Stanley Toy Company that might have been lost if he had not determined to pursue and preserve it. He leaves us with a lesson to find those stories in our own lives that should not be forgotten. Kitty Werner, Oconto County Historian Oconto County Historical Society
