This book, unfortunately, is neither.

My husband thumbed through it briefly and hasn't picked it up since.
Betty Anderson
In this instance it also makes no sense.

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.
