Fesler-Lampert Minnesota Heritage Book

Blackwater Ben
The mission of this series is to republish new editions of significant out-of-print books that contribute to our understanding and appreciation of Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. Popular and beloved authors such as environmental activist Sigurd F. Olson and wilderness adventurer Calvin Rutstrum, as well as modern north woods pioneer Helen Hoover and the renowned artist/writer couple Francis Lee Jaques and Florence Page Jaques, are well represented in the series with contemporary editions of books that have been staples on cabin shelves for decades. From picture books of Wanda Gág’s children’s stories to William Durbin’s young adult novels about immigrants in northern Minnesota, from classical historical studies of the Mississippi River and midwestern railroads to Larry Millett’s mysteries that bring Sherlock Holmes to Minnesota, these books span a wide range of Minnesota literature and history for several generations of readers. This series is published with the generous assistance of the John K. and Elsie Lampert Fesler Fund and David R. and Elizabeth P. Fesler.
