KIRKUS REVIEW

From general to specific, this offers a composite picture of the region which is vigorous, entertaining and intelligent. The ""heartland"" of Wisconsin and Minnesota is explored in its psychological, physical, industrial, cultural, economic and political developments -- through its pattern of living and the parade of its history and the pageant of its people. This profile scores the divergencies and similarities, amplifies its findings in studies of the careers and contributions made by such individuals as Veblen, Babcock, Turner, Beach, Stoll, Frank Lloyd Wright, Cass Gilbert. The regional literature and the writers: the relaxations: the themes of work, thought, arts; of agriculture, milling, mining, lumbering, fishing: the leaders of the political arenss thumbnails of the cities; the Mayo Clinic; the Lunts' estate -- here is a composite view.
