From the Publisher
This collection of essays, poems, sidebars, and many photographs—both black-and-white and color—presents a century and a half of Benedictine life and education in central Minnesota.
This lovely volume contains a dozen thoughtful essays and dozens more quotes and quips that even without illustrations would comprise a solid survey of St. John’s University in Minnesota. As it is, the book’s spectacular photography, both contemporary and archival, adds depth and richness to the prose.
