Overview

On the occasion of Minnesota's 150th anniversary of statehood, more than a hundred historians and other writers assembled to discuss the subjects they had been studying, thinking, and writing about. This book presents the best of that work, including nineteen essays on topics as varied as baseball at Native American boarding schools, nineteenth-century predictions for Minnesota's future, Native American tourist goods, the Kensington runestone, and a memoir of growing up in Marshall. Bringing together some of the most recent and best thinking about Minnesota's past and its people, The State We're In demonstrates the history of this place, in all its rich complexity, before and after statehood.
