Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A brief historical overview covers European expansion, the Dakota conflict, slavery, and robber barons in 22 pages of Minnesota. The treatment aims for age appropriate, but misses the mark without a larger socio-cultural context. At times, the objectivity feels like hindsight endorsement of ruthless behavior. The remainder of the book is lighter reading. It pictures Jesse Ventura as a famous pro-wrestler elected Governor, and Alan Page as a former Viking linesman who is now a Supreme Court justice. Present day photos showcase the best of the region. The Governing section reads like a tour guide, and People and Places is advertising complete with registered trademarks. Demographics are vague. The growing urban communities of North African and Central American students are absent from photos. Add a misspelled location for Reconciliation Park (Mankato, not Markato) and an omitted inland water ranking in the Almanac, and credibility sinks for residents of the state—not so good for the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The book is one in the series "From Sea to Shining Sea." 2003 (orig. 1957), Children's Press/Scholastic,
— Tina Dybvik
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Hasday covers standard report topics such as geography, history, government, and culture. She downplays recent celebrities but does insert brief biographies of famous Minnesotans in sidebars. For example, Alan Page is profiled in a section on the judiciary. This edition is longer than the 1995 version, with increased coverage of history and government and updated statistics. The tone is objective except for a strangely subjective and questionable statement regarding Jesse Ventura's election. There are some factual problems such as the assertion that the state lacks a National Hockey League team. However, this volume is more substantial than Neil Purslow's Minnesota (Weigl, 2000) and Miriam Pollock's Minnesota: Land of 10,000 Lakes (World Almanac, 2002). A generous number of full-color photographs, maps, and diagrams adds to the book's attractiveness and value. However, libraries that own Martin Hintz's Minnesota (Children's, 2000) will notice a great deal of overlap in the visual materials used. Rather than duplicating material, consider A. P. Porter's Minnesota (Lerner, 2001) or Erik Bruun's Minnesota (Black Dog, 2002). Hasday's book provides an adequate starting point for reports where such materials are in high demand.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
