Minnesota 101 : Everything You Wanted to Know About Minnesota and Were Going to Ask
"I read this book from cover to cover. I simply believe that every Minnesotan should read it, because what's inside this book is inside all of us--from the way we speak, to the jokes we tell, to the foods we bring to church." --Marshall Independent
"The pages practically turn themselves and contain some of the most entertaining tidbits of Minnesota Trivia ever gathered between two book covers. It is a fascinating treasure trove." --Star Gazette
"Too bad I didn't have this book a year ago. It's a quick guide to the state with more than 10,000 lakes (11,842 if you are counting). And it has some pretty good information for newcomers and for longtime residents who just don't know as much about the great state of Minnesota as they think." --Faribault Daily News
From the wooly mammoth, British rule, and the post-Revolutionary government to snow, SPAM, and Betty Crocker, this is a comprehensive book on all things Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Well-known Minnesotans such as crime historian Paul Maccabee, meteorologist Paul Douglas, history professor and author Annette Atkins, and food celebrity Andrew Zimmern weigh in on one of the nation's most livable states. Profiles of writers F. Scott Fitzgerald, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Garrison Keillor are also included. The guide runs the gamut of facts on the Gopher State--including great parks, Minnesota slang, outstanding theater, Nobel Prize winners, resident astronauts, and Minnesota "nice"--and is perfect for both the lifelong resident and the first-time visitor.
