Here they come again! Joan Claire Graham and 44 Friends take readers on their annual tour of the North Star State, and this year's tour goes from Lake Bronson to Spring Valley, and from Sherburn to the Gunflint Trail. If you want Minnesota Fiction, go rent Grumpy Old Men, but if real is your deal and Minnesota is your place, you can't beat these 57 tales written by the folks who lived them. These stories are 100% genuine, with no artificial additives or preservatives, and reading them is just a lot more fun than a person ought to be able to have.

While living in other states, Joan Claire Graham found herself defending the intelligence, ingenuity, wit and integrity of Minnesota people from folks whose only frame of reference was Rose on the Golden Girls, Ole and Lena, the fictional Lake Wobegone people or the characters in the movie Fargo. Since 2001, Graham has sought to dispel these stereotypes by challenging real Minnesota folks to show the world who we are with our own true stories. She has gathered hundreds of tales from Minnesota people who range in age from 9 to 100, and this is her seventh collection.Review:
Joan Claire Graham and friends take readers on a rollicking pilgrimage back home, where stories are born... stories that are, as we say in Minnesota, about as good as you'd hear anywhere. --Cheri Register, author, Packinghouse Daughter, a Memoir
