Farms, forests, and iron have fixed the image of Minnesota as an abundant and productive state where Americans came tobuild for themselves and their children a fuller, more equitabe life. Itis an image, believes author William E. Lass, that has been remarkably faithful to the facts. Includes a Historical Guide preparedby the editoers of the American Association for State and Local History, and an Index. "A well-balanced state history. . . .This fine volume will serve as a good beginning to Minnesota's history for the general public. Lass hasdone an admirable job. . . ." - Patrick E. McLear, The Journal of American History
