Starting at Big Stone Lake on the eastern edge of South Dakota, the Minnesota River cuts through southern Minnesota, breaks into waterfalls at Granite Falls, and joins the mighty Mississippi at Fort Snelling, St. Paul. Evan Jones provides a detailed history of the river and its legends in The Minnesota.The river has provided the scenery for many of Minnesota's important historical events -- the Dakota Conflict (also known as the Sioux Uprising of 1862); the only blunder of Jesse James's career; and the origin of selling goods on credit by Sears, Roebuck and Company -- and hosted many famous faces, including Dred Scott, Zebulon Pike, and Henry David Thoreau. Illustrated with line drawings by Harry Heim, The Minnesota weaves an unforgettable history.
