Old Rail Fence Corners: Frontier Tales Told by Minnesota Pioneers
Old Rail Fence Corners
Frontier Tales Told by Minnesota Pioneers
Paperback      ISBN: 0873511093
Old Rail Fence Corners is the story of Minnesota's early settlers in their own words—hardship and happiness on the frontier. These simple, direct accounts, collected at the beginning of the twentieth century, paint vivid pictures of life in Minnesota from the 1840s to the 1860s. A new introduction by Marjorie Kreidburg describes the life and times of the book and of Lucy Leavenworth Wilder Morris, its remarkable editor. Praise for Old Rail Fence Corners: "These personal anecdotes are the stuff of social history—the testimony of ordinary, everyday people, which, when pieced together, give us a picture of pioneer life." —Marilyn J. Lass, Minnesota Reviews

The Voyageur is the authoritative account of a unique and colorful group of men whose exploits, songs, and customs comprise an enduring legacy. French Canadians who guided and paddled the canoes of explorers and fur traders, the voyageurs were experts at traversing the treacherous rapids and dangerous open waters of the canoe routes from Quebec and Montreal to the regions bordering the Great Lakes and on to the Mackenzie and Columbia Rivers. During the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, explorers and fur traders relied on the voyageurs to open up the vast reaches of North America to settlement and trade. A noted scholar of the fur trade, Grace Lee Nute was a curator at the Minnesota Historical Society, a professor of history at Hamline University, and the author of The Voyageur's Highway.
