Most Minnesotans already know how to gut a fish (don't you?), but this book shows you how to smoke it too. And even if you aren't from Minnesota (which is too bad, so sad) it's a great book that can teach you the basics of survival, and how to take out a tick. I keep my copy in my storm cellar -- just in case! (Because it's also fun to read). The only thing it does not have is a way to make a Vikings helmet from the bones of a big mouth bass. Good thing we Minnesotans are resilient.

On a radio show, this gentleman had a suggestion about pheasant hunting. His idea: when a hunting party comes upon public hunting land that is already being hunted by a another party - it is OK to jump onto that field and share with the other party. LOL.

While I try to teach my children to share, it does not always make sense to do (i.e. underwear, contact lenses, toothbrushes, etc). In this instance it also makes no sense. 2 completely different parties share a field? What if the topography makes 1 party invisible to the other? Thanks Chris, but I'd rather figure out these skills on my own!

Honestly, quite disappointed. Judging by the cover, I expected a fun little book to flip through. It's a collection of not-terribly insightful-nor-witty newspaper columns. Not much humor in the writing, nor much actual instruction. There are better books on Minnesota culture (I'm sure there's a Prairie Home Companion book or two) and certainly better how-to articles online. This book, unfortunately, is neither.

Not sure what to get your favorite Minnesotan for the next hoilday? This book is a perfect gift. From the Tunnel of Fudge Cake recipe to the sauna etiquette section it truly captures what we all love about the land of 10,000 lakes.

I was expecting a book more like the Fox Fire books the author referred to. Needed more directions, recipes, instructions, glossy paged pictures would have been very nice.
