The Stonecutters
by John T. Sielaff

Who were those highly skilled carvers and hard-working machine tenders that cut, planed, polished, shaped, and carved the state capitol’s marble exterior and interior? Partial answer: Men from all over the nation (and world) who converged in St. Paul at a time when mechanization was transforming their centuries-old craft.

Twin Cities through the Lens of Charles Chamblis
by Ben Petry
A sampling of the legacy of The Pictureman, whose 2,000-plus images, donated to the Minnesota Historical Society, are “close-ups that speak, moments that sing, and doors that open again.”

A Paradise Lost: Helen Hoover and Gunflint Lake
by David R. Hakensen
Living their dream, for a while: A 44-year-old professional couple from Chicago moves to a two-room log cabin in Minnesota’s north woods without much of a game plan. After lean years and hard work, Helen becomes a nationally successful nature writer, her popular books illustrated by her husband, Adrian.
