Winter's Children

A Celebration of Nordic Skiing
by Ryan Rodgers.
The story of Nordic skiing in the Midwest and its introduction in the late 1800s. Generously illustrated with vintage photography and ski posters, this is an engaging look at the earliest ski teams and touring clubs; the evolution of cross-country skis, gear, and fashion; and the ambitious and ongoing effort to establish and maintain a vast trail network across the Minnesota state park system.
