Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Politically, culturally, geographically, and historically, Minnesota is unique. Fortunately, Interlink's latest entry in its "On-the-Road-Histories" does the North Star State justice. Radzilowksi, a Minnesota native and historian, sprinkles his text with maps, photographs, cultural highlights, and events, and enhances the text with poems, songs, and interesting quotations (in 1837, for example, an itinerant teacher uttered, "Opened my school...The brats who attended for the purpose of being benefited amounted to thirty. Such a group of geniuses, I never saw before. May it never be my privilege to meet another"). Indeed, Radzilowski doesn't ignore the negative, describing a 1920 lynching and the many injustices endured by the state's Native Americans. But he points out that the state is also rich in sons and daughters: Walter Mondale, Hubert H. Humphrey, Judy Garland, and Prince, to name just a few. This slender and compact book is easy to use; the colored boxes emphasize must-see sights, including contact information and location, while the excellent photos can be touching, like one, dated 1930, of a Native American baby in a cradlebox (papoose). As Minnesotans would say in their understated way, "the state is a pretty good place." Essential for all libraries.-Susan G. Baird, Chicago Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Minnesota: On-the-Road is recommended for on-site visitors and armchair travellers alike!

    John Radzilowski is a Minnesota native, writer and historian. He therefore brings a special expertise to Minnesota: On-the-Road, a panoramic survey of the cultural, historical, and geographic aspects of a surprisingly multi-ethnic upper midwest state which always ranked high with respect to the environmental, the economic well-being of its citizens, the arts, health, and education. Along with a lively account of Minnesota's history, Minnesota: On-the-Road is enhanced for the traveller with full-color and black/white archival and contemporary photographs and maps a chronology of major events 'infobits' such as state symbols, songs, etc. literary extracts visitor resources and 'must-see' sights cultural highlights and special events and a select bibliography. Minnesota: On-the-Road is recommended for on-site visitors and armchair travellers alike!
