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.

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.

Gentle Warriors: Clara Ueland and the Minnesota Struggle for Woman Suffrage
Gentle Warriors
Clara Ueland and the Minnesota Struggle for Woman Suffrage
Paperback      ISBN: 0873513185
Gentle Warriors tells the moving story of the final phase of the Minnesota women's struggle for the vote under the leadership of the remarkable Clara Ueland. Clara Ueland, socially prominent wife of a successful Minneapolis attorney and mother of seven children, became president of the Minnesota Woman Suffrage Association in 1914. To that challenge she brought considerable skills acquired as a teacher, a household manager, and a community activist. She was a new woman of her time: politically astute, enormously competent, and widely respected. Under her leadership, enthusiastic, persistent suffragists were organized in some five hundred towns throughout Minnesota by 1919 - the year the state legislature ratified the Nineteenth Amendment. Through research in family papers, organizational records, and the vast literature on women's history, Stuhler shows how Minnesota's campaigners for equal voting rights reflect America's second generation of suffragists. Unlike the first generation of leaders - Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and others - the women who carried the struggle to its brilliant victory in 1920 are largely forgotten. Gentle Warriors brings them back to life, re-creating their energizing achievements, their bitter disappointments, their conflicts and friendships. On these pages, those committed suffragists who struggled on with such bountiful imagination, humor, dedication, and vision, take their rightful place in history.
