Have you ever heard of anyone trying to steal the Mississippi River? Who were the people in Southeastern Minnesota before the white settlers? Why did citizens of this area protest the Civil War? Who was the early La Crescent woman who wanted a dozen husbands? The answers to these questions are among the 60 stories written by Huegel collected in this book. They run the gamut from pre-history of the area, through early white settlement up to the 1960s. The entertaining stories are rich in first-hand accounts. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be amazed. You'll wonder what they were thinking!
