Front Cover
Beaver's Pond Press, Incorporated, Sep 15, 2017 - Reference - 265 pages
With less than 2% of the nation's population, Minnesota is a model for prosperity, creativity, and quality of life. This is a book about Minnesota. It's not the usual tourism hype about Paul Bunyan or the best bed-and-breakfasts. It's about the fabric of the state--its constant investment in the arts, its dedication to the environment, its balanced economy, its educational attainment, and, above all, its water. Water. In a world short of water. These 500-plus rankings and facts will surprise even the most well-read Minnesotans. Minnesota is home to: The largest Hindu and Buddhist temples in the nation. The quietest place on Earth. The largest sports complex in the world. The least likely place in the world for an earthquake. The safest drivers in the nation. If you're from Minnesota, send this to an out-of-state friend to explain why you put up with about 50 stinky days a year. If you're not a Minnesotan, come join us. We're the state of the future.
