Synopsis: Known to native peoples for centuries as a sacred place and hunting ground, the ninth largest of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes remained unchanged until its shores were opened to settlement in 1851. The following year, New York promoter George Bertram wrote, "For healthfulness of climate, fertility of soil, beauty of scenery and nearness to markets [it] cannot be surpassed by any other locality in the country, being within twelve or fifteen miles of two of the most important towns in the territory . . . navigable for steam and other boats over forty-one miles, its waters clear as crystal and abounding with fish." Settlers began to flock to Lake Minnetonka's 120 miles of shoreline, clearing the "Big Woods" and building new lives in the wilderness. Soon, the lake became a tourist destination; thousands traveled across the country to stay in its lavish hotels, ride in massive steamboats, and enjoy the lake's beauty.

About the Author: For the first time, the Excelsior-Lake Minnetonka, Wayzata, and Westonka Historical Societies have collaborated to illustrate the history of "lake life" using their extensive archival and photographic resources. Images of America: Lake Minnetonka takes readers on a journey around the lake with many never-before-published photographs: from posed professional shots to family candid images that record everyday life right down to the smirk on a young boy's face.
