      Lac qui Parle (locals pronounce it Lak kwa Par-uhl) is a French translation of the native Dakota name, meaning “lake which speaks” and is a reference to a lake formed by the widening of the Minnesota River along the northeastern border of the county. The history of the U.S. state of Minnesota is shaped by its original Native American residents, European exploration and settlement, and the emergence of industries made possible by the state's natural resources. Minnesota achieved prominence through fur trading, logging, and farming, and later through railroads, and iron mining. While those industries remain important, the state's economy is.

      Minneapolis Madams is the surprising and riveting account of the Minneapolis red-light district and the powerful madams who ran it. Penny A. Petersen brings to life this nearly forgotten chapter of Minneapolis history, tracing the story of how these “houses of ill fame” rose to prominence in the late nineteenth century and were finally shut down in the early twentieth century. A listing of Authors/Writers born in Minnesota who have left their mark in the world of literature and entertainment. Charlie Baxter (Minneapolis, MN) Author; National Book Awards Finalist for his novel, “The Feast of Love” (). Many other literature awards and recognitions. Robert Bly (Madison, MN) Poet/Author/Editor; Minnesota’s first Poet Laureate, ; founder of the expressive.

      North Country: The Making of Minnesota unlocks the complex origins of the state—origins that have often been ignored in favor of legend and a far more benign narrative of immigration, settlement, and cultural exchange. It is the unflinching account of how the land the Dakota named Mini Sota Makoce became the State of Minnesota and of the people who have called it home. Early days in Ramsey County, Minnesota, are recalled in this NEW page spiral bound booklet reprinted from two rare books: History of the Minnesota Valley, by the Rev. Edward D. Neill, and Minnesota, a State Guide, a WPA publication. The booklet is printed one-sided on 60# paper with the print enlarged for easier reading.
