Headwaters Region Guide (PDF)


Category: Tags: ,


**The Headwaters Region Guide was a Finalist in the Travel/Travel Guide Category for the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards (NGIBA).

The Mississippi River trickles out of Lake Itasca as it begins its long journey to the Gulf of Mexico, meandering its way through the forests, marshes, and plains of northern Minnesota, a region where extremes are the norm. The Headwaters Region Guide follows the Mississippi River from Itasca State Park and along its 450 mile path toward the Twin Cities. It includes detailed histories for the river corridor, from the Ojibwe communities in the Headwaters Region to cities like Bemidji, Grand Rapids, Brainerd, and St. Cloud. The book details local history and culture and offers ideas on how to experience life like a local, whether by canoeing on the Mississippi River or hiking, biking, or cross-country skiing one of the many trails in the area. 248 pages; published July 2016. (This is a PDF; you’ll be able to download a copy immediately after checking out.)

NOTE: You can order a print version of the book from Amazon.
