Greyhound buses and vintage suitcases, whitewashed cottages and wildlife souvenirs, fishing camps and bathing beauties adorn the pages of the book. Here, the authors of the wildly popular 'Minnesota Eats Out' returns to take readers across the state, through the seasons, and into the getaways of decades past. From primitive camping facilities at Minnehaha Falls to mom-and-pop tourist courts like the Kum-Bak Camp in Duluth to spectacular grand lodges like Burntside in Ely, this lavishly illustrated history showcases the North Star State's most memorable holiday haunts. Through an astonishing variety of vintage photographs and artefacts, recipes and family fun, the book offers a one-of-a-kind venture into the best of the good times. It includes 90 vintage recipes.
