Overview

Only in Minnesota is a pictorial tribute to all that makes the state unique. Combining the natural, historical, and cultural facets of life in Minnesota, it showcases the people and what they do for fun (the Uptown Art Fair, ice fishing), where they live (from the cities of Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth, and Rochester to smaller towns and rural regions in between), their favorite places (Mille Lacs, Split Rock Lighthouse), and more. More than 160 dazzling, four-color photographs, showing a variety of subjects—from farms and churches to tourist destinations and state parks; from nature scenes to city festivals and cultural events—are the focus of Only in Minnesota. These photographs are accented by lively captions and fun facts. The result is a homage to the Gopher state from a local author and photographer whose love for Minnesota comes through on every page. Roxanne Kjarum is a freelance photographer who shoots advertising for money and the natural world for love. Her first published work was in Sierra Club magazine in 1988; since then her photography has appeared in numerous publications, including MPLS.ST.PAUL Magazine, Lake Superior Magazine, and Metropolitan Home.

This book is not only beautiful but very informative as well. It has information on everything from the Split Rock Light House to Paul Bunyan Land and everything in between. There is an article about the Fish house Parade in Aitkin MN on the day after Thanksgiving and so many festivals and fun things that it makses you want to get right out and start exploring the state. The Photography is beautiful and inspiring and there are just so many articles and things to read about. The authors and photographers really knew what they were doing when they put this one together. My husband and I have been all over the State of MN and seen many of these things so we know of what we speak, this is a WONDERFUL BOOK! We have it out on the coffee table and plan on giving it to all of our relatives for gifts this year. Please go to the store and look it over so that you too can see what I am talking about. Again, from the headwaters of the Mississippi to the Eagles nesting areas in southern MN, this book has it covered. Zsteddybear
