Bittersweet Berries: Growing Up Jewish in Minnesota
Bittersweet Berries
Growing Up Jewish in Minnesota
Paperback      ISBN: 0930100832
Ruth F. Brin's compelling memoir reveals the childhood beginnings of her life as feminist thinker, poet, and well-respected writer of the Jewish faith. Brin draws close and loving portraits of her parents and older brothers, and outlines the history of her paternal grandparents who came to America from Austria-Hungary in the late 1880s to settle in Saint Paul. Early on, Brin relates her growing sense of how her religious faith will be integrated into her life and the ways in which she and her family must confront and survive instances of anti-Semitism. The author's original poems combine with her family's traditional stories to make Bittersweet Berries a unique narrative of one woman's beginnings and growth as an accomplished writer and religious thinker.

25 Bicycle Tours in the Twin Cities and Southeastern Minnesota
25 Bicycle Tours in the Twin Cities and Southeastern Minnesota
Paperback      ISBN: 0881504084
A touring guide to one of the finest cycling areas in the Midwest--a land of gently rolling hills, lakes and rivers, quiet roads, and historic bike trails. Minnesota, and especially the Twin Cities region, has developed an extensive network of bike paths around its lakes and along rivers--and for good reason. Cycling is one of the favorite pastimes in a state where the land is mostly flat and long winters give way to spectacular summers. With this latest addition to our well-established series, cyclists have a valuable guide to the most interesting and scenic of these urban bike paths and country roads. Included in these 25 tours is a long ride along the Root River Tail in the historic Bluffs Country of southeastern Minnesota; a four-lakes loop through Minneapolis; a gastronomic pedal through Spamtown, USA; an exploration of Mantorville, where nearly all the buildings are on the Historic Register; and a tour retracing an escape route of the infamous Jesse James gang. The tours range from 10 to 60 miles in length, from flat and urban to hilly and remote. Included with each tour is a detailed map, total mileage, complete mile-by-mile directions, and information on nearby points of interest.
