Voyageurs National Park: The Battle to Create Minnesota's by Fred T. Witzig

By Fred T. Witzig

While President Nixon signed the laws authorizing the institution of Voyageurs nationwide Park on January eight, 1971, nearly 80 years had handed considering that Minnesota’s govt first and foremost petitioned to create a countrywide park within the northern component to the kingdom. Voyageurs nationwide Park chronicles the complicated criminal and political crusade to came upon Minnesota’s merely nationwide park. Witzig’s completely documented and referenced examine permits him to supply a close view of the unanticipated disappointments and defining moments of accomplishment that followed this complex legislative conflict. targeting the interval from 1962 to 1975, Witzig identifies and explains the vital matters surrounding the crusade together with land acquisition coverage, neighborhood issues and competition to the park, interagency clash over inclusion of U.S. woodland lands, antifederal attitudes in northeastern Minnesota, and the overstated case for the commercial merits a countrywide park could convey. Witzig covers of the dispute over the inclusion of Crane Lake within the park and makes a speciality of the numerous participants and teams who have been instrumental within the institution of Voyageurs nationwide Park, reminiscent of Governor Elmer L. Andersen, John A. Blatnik, Sigurd F. Olson, and Rita Shemesh.
