A collection of writings and interviews that originated with a popular feature in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Minnesota's Twentieth Century 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 century.
