The Early Resorts of Minnesota - Tourism in the Land of 10,000 Lakes Reviews
What an excellent book on Minnesota Resort Culture! Incredible photos and history of this long-lost piece of our history.
The pictures were so good. It was like a trip down memory lane for me to read about the resorts on Leech Lake. I found the other lakes and pictures just as interesting. I would love to time travel back to those days in the 30's, 40's, 50's, and 60's to see what those resorts and lakes looked like back then. This book is the next best thing!
