Byronic Hero Types and Proto

Cover
U of Minnesota Press, 01.01.1999 - 204 Seiten
One hundred years of remarkable Minnesota stories are brought together for the first time in Minnesota's Twentieth Century. A collection of writings and interviews that originated with the popular feature "A Century of Stories" in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, this book reveals the progress of a courageous, industrious people and their changing state. Lavishly illustrating these recollections are indelible images--contemporary photographs of the storytellers, as well as historical views of street scenes, prohibition arrests, and landscapes--that reflect the transformations of the past one hundred.
