KIRKUS REVIEW

Less rounded as a regional portrait than most of the books in this series, with less defined topical coverage, this is largely a socio-historical picture of the country which includes Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the western shores of the Great Lakes. It is more of a prose panorama, diffuse in its lyricism, impressionistic, and is concerned primarily with immigrations and settlements and prairie travel, with early days of Indians and pioneers, the incoming types and trades, the timber and ore, corn and wheat, railroad expansion, drought and strike, and finally World War II. More localized in appeal than its predecessors in the American Folkways series, with little of the immediate interest they have held.
