Volume 1 sets the scene for the arrival of the first settlers and homesteaders to this area. The stories include:
(+$2.06 MN sales tax +$6.00 S&H)
Volume II covers the time period from the early 1900s to just after World War II. There are exciting stories about the iron mining era that transformed this area into a unique melting pot of cultures. Immigrants from many countries poured in to take advantage of the new "well-paid" work!
This "peoples" history, from medicine and schools to service groups and the military, tells the story from the lives of those who lived it. $29.95
(+$2.06 MN sales tax +$6.00 S&H) Volume III
The third and final volume of the histories covers the period from roughly 1950 to publication in 2004. The challenge of many towns and townships following the closing of the mines--their main reason for existence--is a story not only of survival but also of success. The skills, persistence, and courage it took to work far below the surface of the ground or with massive equipment in the pits are the same attributes that resulted in our area's successful machining and other manufacturing businesses. As is the case with the first two books, Volume III tells the history of medical progress, businesses, schools, and the contributions of service organizations of the last 50 years in terms of the people who lived it. $29.95

|The Milford Mine Disaster, A
Cuyuna Range Tragedy; by Berger Aulie; Copyright 1994; W.A.
On February 5, 1924, mud and water from a nearby lake flooded the Milford Mine near Crosby, Minnesota, drowning 41 of the 48 men working underground. Thirty-three were married, and this left 88 children fatherless. The Milford Mine Disaster is a story filled with details undisclosed for almost 70 years. Publication was funded by a grant from the DeWitt and Caroline Van Evera Foundation. Research, writing, and editing were donated by the author, Berger Aulie.

|A Family of Pioneers, The
Evolution of a Wilderness Farm into a Modern Community on the Shore of Bay
Lake; by Albert L. Knieff; Copyright 1996; KSA
The front cover photo is a reproduction of one of Heinrich Knieff's watercolor paintings from 1885. It includes the home of Knieff's Indian neighbor, Kahwessie, and his family. The future Knieff home can be seen in the background, as Heinrich visualized that it would someday be, although it had not yet been completed at the time of his death.
"Over a century has passed since my grandfather came to Bay Lake to find a quiet place to finish rearing his family and to live out his years in peace," writes author, Al Knieff, "I have often wondered what he would think of his little homestead, if only he could see it as it is now."
