He was there when Minnesota was the roaring frontier. He often found himself 200 miles from the law, a newspaper on the road. He was praised, denounced, investigated, applauded, threatened and shot at. This book is a chronicle of life, free enterprise and politics on the frontier a lively, dangerous and different frontier. This story is not only about hard-won successes, whose monuments still stand, but of hard-lost failures that left little trace.
