    Recommended for those interested in History! Catch myself going back and reviewing the different towns that I have driven through so often.

    Really interesting to see what is happening with the small towns in Minnesota. We slowly watch them fade away as the generations move on to provide for themselves in other areas. Areas decline with bigger cities taking in the with the possibilities of more to offer.

    Keeping Minnesota History Alive in Small Towns

    When you open the pages of Little Minnesota you find a wonderful collection of stories that tell you what makes each of the featured small towns what they are today. Whether it be the history of its founders or the commerce that once thrived in years past or a local festival that continues to draw visitors each year, the author has captured the heart of each of these small Minnesota communities. It¿s clear much effort has been spent researching each town along with in-person interviews to create this book. Accompanying each section are recent photos and sometimes pictures from local historical archives¿each providing a glimpse of what makes the town unique. As you read Little Minnesota and if you are lucky enough to have a small town in your past, you will remember your own family roots. And when you¿ve read the final entry, you¿ll want to unfold your map of Minnesota and plan your own road trip to the towns of Little Minnesota. MaryBaker

    Highly Recommended

    I love reading ¿Little Minnesota.¿ Jill Johnson captures the essence of small town Minnesota and its people. She writes about the places they came from and why they settled in Farwell, Effie or in one of the 100 towns she includes in her book. She ends each chapter about the present day village; does the church built in 1886 still exist, or what happened at the last church service. This is a fun read for anyone who came from a small town or community, of course, everyone lives in a community with history. This book is a perfect Christmas gift for friends and family. Carolyn
