In Search of Lake Wobegon by Garrison Keillor (Viking Books 2001) - This is a beautiful book of photographs of rural Minnesota taken by the very talented Richard Olsenius. The accompanying text, also by a homegrown Minnesotan Garrison Keillor, leaves no doubt in the reader's mind what Lake Wobegon looks and feels like. I've never been to Minnesota, but this book feels just like a trip home. My rating: 8.5/10, finished 3/9/14.
