A Book in the Dialect of Northern Minnesota
“A Book in the Dialect of Northern Minnesota” is written to express what and how I feel about life around me. I got the title from John Keats’ book, “A Book in the Dialect of the Lakes Country”, that I read in my early twenties.
After thirty plus years of writing, I decided to publish what was salvageable from about 1000 pages of manuscript. My publisher wants me to highlight my credentials as a writer, so I will say my highest credential is that I love God, and in his name, Jesus, I dedicate this book.
What I have written has been an on-going process for most of my fifty-two years on earth, and I am thankful to be able to share some of my thoughts with my readers. My influences as a writer were the world and the people that God created, but mainly God Himself. Jesus alone is my credential as a writer and, of course, any and all imperfections in my writing are mine and not His.
