Minnesota Days is a collection of writing, photography, and artwork focusing on Minnesota: its history, variety of people, and culture. Discover what life was like as one of the first settlers on the prairie, or what it was like to be a new immigrant in Minneapolis in 1900s. . . Find out how Native Americans remember life in the 1800s and what it's like in this community today. . . Learn about the memories of those who grew up in the state as African-Americans. From the northern forests to the southern plains, from the farms to the hustle and bustle of the cities, Minnesota Days tells the whole story of the people who call this exceptional place home. Contributors represent the best of Minnesota writing: Garrison Keillor, Laura Ingalls Wilder, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sinclair Lewis, Jim Klobuchar, Bill Holm, Sigurd Olson, Ole Rolvaag, Jim Northrup, Winona LaDuke, Gordon Parks, Evelyn Fairbanks, Meridel LeSueur, Paul Gruchow, Jon Hassler, and others. Photography and artwork is from such well-known artists as Jim Brandenburg, Craig Blacklock, Wanda Gag, Bob Artley, William Albert Allard, Gary Alan Nelson, Francis Lee Jaques, Carl Gawboy, and others. Current and former Minnesota residents alike will cherish this tribute to the "land of 10,000 lakes." Share the tradition with others; it makes a great gift
