MINNESOTA - A History

MINNESOTA - A History

Manufacturer: Bemidji Woolen Mills
Category: Others

By William E. Lass

Coming from the eastern United States and Europe, particularly from Scandinavia, the immigrants who settled Minnesota in the nineteenth century found a vast land that challenged their talents and energy. They forged three empires that would make their state significant in American history: from the rich prairies, wheat; from great forests of evergreens and hardwoods, lumber; and on the shores of Lake Superior, in beds just beneath the ground, huge deposits of iron ore. In this concise survey, William E. Lass tells the story of Minnesota from its beginnings to the present, including its political history, marked by farm protest movements and the creation of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. He describes twentieth-century changes in the traditional frontier business and recent developments in Minnesota society, such as rapidly increasing metropolitanism, a new focus on environmental issues, and the conservative resurgence in present-day politics.

MINNESOTA EATS OUT - An Illustrated History

MINNESOTA EATS OUT - An Illustrated History

Manufacturer: Bemidji Woolen Mills
Category: Others

By Kathryn Strand Koutsky and Linda Koutsky with recipes by Eleanor Ostman

Let's eat out
Minnesotans have always loved to eat out, in the opulent dining rooms of fancy hotels, in piney resort halls, or in standard around-the-corner cafés, where the food is hot and plentiful. And the best of these eateries inspire cherished memories of fabulous food and charming camaraderie.
Minnesota Eats Out is a virtual romp through the state's dining spots, from early health resorts to Prohibition-era speakeasies to A&W drive-ins, illustrated with nearly one thousand photographs, postcards, menus, matchbooks, and collectible dishes. Kathryn Strand Koutsky and Linda Koutsky narrate the history of dining in the North Star State, highlighting innovative foods, inspired restaurant architecture, and cutting-edge graphic design, along with anecdotes about beloved restaurants remembered through the decades.
Accompanying this rich history is a priceless collection of recipes for dishes made famous through the years, like the pioneer's Indian Pudding and old favorites from Eibner's Bakery in New Ulm or Ruttger's Resort in Brainerd. Eleanor Ostman revised these recipes for preparation in modern kitchens. Embellished with photographs of historic restaurants, collectible tableware, and restaurant ephemera, the recipes invite today's readers to re-create cherished food memories.
Minnesota Eats Out, a one-of-a-kind venture into the state's history, serves up over a century of fine and fun Minnesota dining.

Pocket Guide to Minnesota Place Names

Pocket Guide to Minnesota Place Names

Manufacturer: Bemidji Woolen Mills
Category: Others

By Michael Fedo
The Stories Behind 1,200 Places in the North Star State
A handy and entertaining pocket guide to the origins of place names of the North Star state.
Within our state's borders you'll find such exotic place names as Amor and Darling, Fertile and Conception, Comfort and Happyland, Looneyville and Nimrod, Flour Lake and the Diarrhoea River, Great Scott and Eureka, Home and Nowhere, Moonshine and Whiskey Creek, Stringtown and Pig's Eye, Snowball and North Pole, Embarrass and Kiester, Coin and Money Creek, and Chickentown and Bull Moose. But how did these places get such unusual names? Wonder no longer as author Michael Fedo relates the curious and prosaic ways in which a place gets named.
Place names tell a rich history of how our state was settled. This compact guide presents the fascinating stories behind over 1,200 Minnesota place names. Included are all the names you'd expect--counties, larger towns and cities, major lakes and rivers--as well as the curious and odd. Culled from over 20,000 entries in the classic work Minnesota Place Names by Warren Upham, this concise guide is the perfect companion for anyone who travels the highways and waterways of the North Star state.
MICHAEL FEDO is the author of four other books including The Lynchings in Duluth and The Man from Lake Wobegon and has been a contributor to the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Newsday, and the Christian Science Monitor. He lives in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, a place named, not surprisingly, for the numerous raccoons that used to frequent the banks of Coon Creek.
