Bring Warm Clothes: Letters and Photos from Minnesota's Past Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A celebration of the everyday lives of Minnesotans through the centuriesandndash;those who paused here on their way to someplace else and those who made the state their home.

Synopsis:

The earliest European visitors to Minnesota marvel at the area's flora and fauna. A soldier at Fort Snelling contemplates deserting. Swedish settler Andrew Peterson makes a daily record of his haying schedule, dropping in, without comment, a note of his marriage. Sarah Christie pleads with her father in the 1880s for a chance to go to college. Turn-of-the-century accountant Walter T. Post keeps his family informed of his saving and spending habits. In the 1920s, the Pioneer Press publishes recommendations for young ladies seeking a spouse.

These stories and more emerge from select diary and journal entries, from published accounts and business recordsandndash;the experiences of ordinary Minnesotans. Matched with drawings and photographs that capture a way of life at a particular moment, these impressions offer a telling history of the state in the words of its people.

Peg Meier, a longtime and award-winning reporter for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, is the author of Too Hot, Went to Lake: Seasonal Photos from Minnesota's Past, Coffee Made Her Insane, and The Last of the Tearoom Ladies.
