In 1967 the National Hockey League decided to double its size from six teams to twelve. This expansion was the first of its kind, and Minnesota, with its rich hockey history, was a natural choice for a new franchise. Thus the Minnesota North Stars were born. Frozen in Time examines the organization’s signature seasons, from the late 1970s, when the club was at its worst, to its two surprising runs to the Stanley Cup Finals. The book recalls the exploits of characters such as Wren Blair, the firebrand ex-scout who would become the team’s first coach and general manager, and owner Norm Green, the man who moved the team to Texas in 1993, making him one of the most hated men in Minnesota. Here, too, is the tragic story of Bill Masterton, an original North Star whose death in 1968 as the result of an on-ice injury remains the only one in the history of the league. The team’s engaging history is brought to life with vivid recollections from former players and legends, including Cesare Maniago, Tom Reid, and Bobby Smith, and from journalists, broadcasters, front office executives, and faithful fans. Also including season-by-season summaries, player profiles, and statistics, Frozen in Time offers an authoritative and nostalgic look at Minnesota’s still-beloved North Stars and a bygone era of pro hockey.

THE NORTH STAR STATE encompasses the wide range of Minnesota's unique past -- from the Civil War to the World Wars, from frontier life to the age of technological innovation, from Dakota and Ojibwe history to the story of St Paul's black sleeping car porters, from lumber workers and truckers' strikes to the women's suffrage movement. In addition to investigative articles by the state's top historians, editor Anne Aby has assembled captivating first-person accounts from key moments in Minnesota history, including George Nelson's reminiscences of his years in the early nineteenth-century fur trade; the diary of Emily Goodridge Grey, an early African American settler; and Jasper N Searles's letters home from the Battle of First Bull Run. From the quintessential to the quirky, from the panoramic to the particular, these essays tell a fascinating history of our state.Culled from the best of the award-winning Minnesota History Magazine, the essays in THE NORTH STAR STATE are arranged in sections that focus on a particular aspect of life and culture, including race and ethnicity, politics and law, industry, war, labour, education, and other areas of inquiry central to understanding our state's unique history. These engaging sections invite readers to dip into topics of interest or read from cover to cover. Every article is thoroughly annotated and indexed, and a timeline quickly places the major events of the book into their proper context.
