St. Paul's Historic Summit Avenue by Ernest R. Sandeen

Book Description

St. Paul's Historic Summit Avenue highlights the fascinating story of this boulevard, from its pre-Civil War origins, when the area was still considered wilderness, to its fashionable height at the turn of the century. Ernest R. Sandeen discusses the preservation of Summit Avenue and takes readers on a walking tour of the first and grandest mile of the street, beginning with the Cathedral of St. Paul. A second walking tour gives the reader Fitzgerald's Summit Avenue, including excerpts from his notebooks and stories describing the area. The book concludes with an index of Summit Avenue houses built through the 1970s.

Roots of Fundamentalism by Ernest R. Sandeen Roots of Fundamentalism, Paperback (November 2008)

Presents an intellectual historical critique of the Fundamentalist movement in America. This work argues that our understanding of this movement has been grievously distorted by the Fundamentalist-Modernist debate of the 1920s, as symbolized by William Jennings Bryan and the Scopes trial.

Lake District of Minneapolis by Ernest R. Sandeen Lake District of Minneapolis, Paperback (March 2004)

David A. Lanegran and Ernest R. Sandeen give us the complete history of the area-from the early Native American villages and pioneering missionaries, through the era of the grand resort and the coming of the streetcars, to the park board's remaking of the lakes and the landscape in 1911.
