 1.  North Star State: A Minnesota History Reader
Edited by Anne Aby, foreword by Paul Gruchow
512 pp., 9 b&w illus., notes, index, paperback, Minnesota Historical Society Press / Borealis Books Imprint
An engaging history of Minnesota, told in compelling essays by the state's finest historians and writers.
Two hundred years of Minnesota history spring to life in this lively and captivating collection of essays. The North Star State encompasses the wide range of Minnesota's unique past--from the Civil War to the World Wars, from frontier life to the age of technological innovation, from Dakota and Ojibwe history to the story of St. Paul's black sleeping-car porters, from lumber workers and truckers' strikes to the women's suffrage movement.
In addition to investigative articles by the state's top historians, editor Anne Aby has assembled captivating first-person accounts from key moments in Minnesota history, including George Nelson's reminiscences of his years in the early nineteenth-century fur trade; the diary of Emily Goodridge Grey, an early African American settler; and Jasper N. Searles's letters home from the Battle of First Bull Run.
