About this title

Synopsis:

"Andersen's story is the Horatio Alger myth made real, but his life is about much more than money and politics. He believes in public service, in democracy, and in striving to meet the needs of all citizens, especially those in the worst circumstances. Andersen's strong faith and values resonate from the first page of this autobiography. His writing is honest, personable, straightforward, portraying both the personal rigor and thoughtfulness of his business and newspaper careers." -St. Paul Pioneer Press"Andersen and his skillful editor Sturdevant have produced a book that refreshes the spirit by reminding us of the possibilities of a life devoted to the service of others. This delightful memoir will rejuvenate the faith of all who believe in the value of honesty and the power of perseverance harnessed to a noble cause." -Minnesota HistoryGovernor Elmer L. Andersen is one of Minnesota's leading political, business, and cultural figures. He lives in Arden Hills, Minnesota.Lori Sturdevant is an editorial writer for the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
