The North Country Reader is filled with an array of classic and contemporary voices—native Minnesotans and immigrants, farmers and city folks, the sweet and the bittersweet. These timeless selections from novels, short stories, essays, and memoirs convey the diversity of the Minnesota experience. From the jazz-age tales of F. Scott Fitzgerald and the depression-era stories of Gordon Parks to the modern-day concerns of Patricia Hampl and Carol Bly, this collection reminds us of the richness of the place called Minnesota.

A Photographic Portrait

In 120 black-and-white images, Minnesota in Our Time: A Photographic Portrait showcases the work of twelve talented photographers who sought to capture the essence of the state and its people at the threshold of the new millennium. Like the Farm Security Administration photographers of the Depression era, these men and women document the details of life in this time and the transformations now taking place in this state. This work is a product of the Minnesota 2000 Photo Documentation Project, a three-year effort that has also produced an archival collection of 360 images and a museum exhibition. The project's wealth of images provides a multifaceted look at lives and landscapes in Minnesota, focusing on common experiences and themes among a diverse population of individuals.
