 Glowing Review Salutes Minnesota Gold

"Profusely illustrated, "Minnesota Gold: Conversations with Northland Athletes Competing on the World Stage" is a unique and absolutely absorbing read which is very highly recommended, not only for Minnesota sports fans, but as a template for others to emulate in presenting similar studies of sports and athletics in other states and regions of the country. Informed and informative, "Minnesota Gold" is certain to be an enduringly popular addition to all Minnesota community and academic library collections!"
