The story of the scientist who first mapped Minnesota’s geology, set against the backdrop of early scientific inquiry in the state 

 Sue Leaf will be at the Bell Museum on Tuesday, June 23 at 7:00 p.m. for the launch of her new book, Minnesota's Geologist: The Life of Newton Horace Winchell.

Tracing Newton Horace Winchell’s path to becoming a leading light of an emerging scientific field, Minnesota’s Geologist recreates the early days of scientific inquiry in Minnesota, when one man’s passion for learning could unlock secrets of the state’s distant past and present landscape. This first telling of Winchell’s life story is set against a backdrop of Minnesota’s geological complexity and splendor.

"Sue Leaf has done a great service for the people of Minnesota and beyond by telling the story of Newton Horace Winchell so thoughtfully and beautifully. Readers of Minnesota's Geologist will be rewarded with new insights into why the world around us functions as it does. This is a book that I've been hoping for." —Harvey Thorleifson, director, Minnesota Geological Survey

"Minnesota’s Geologist is an engaging biography of a pioneering scientist and a vivid tour through Minnesota’s landscape. Sue Leaf weaves the geology and natural history of the state seamlessly through the narrative of Winchell’s life and boundless curiosity. The reader travels with Leaf, following Winchell’s steps through Minnesota and beyond." —Julie Bartley, Gustavus Adolphus College
