“To read these stories is to wish to head north. The musing and recollecting of these contemplative (but decidedly hardy) Minnesotans will sustain us all through the long , and after all, meaningful winter. This book is a most pleasing and appropriate gift to the state’s people from the University of Minnesota Press.” Rochester Post Bulletin
