From the rugged North Shore of Lake Superior to the sweeping and mighty Mississippi, Minnesota spans billions of years of history and one of the most diverse ecologies in North America. Using the latest in digital photography, the seasonal rhythms across the transition from the Boreal Forest to the Plains are explored through a number of parks and national wildlife refuges. Award winning nature photographer and author Jim Jamieson chases the seasons through avian flyways, spectacular waterfalls, pristine lakes and national scenic riverways.

Midwest Book Review: "...a compilation of beautiful images by photographer Jim Jamieson showcasing Minnesota's natural phenomena, landscapes, and wildlife. Using digital photography, this compendium of 201 captioned photos and illustrations follows the changing seasons as reflected in a number of Minnesota's parks and wildlife refuges. Very highly recommended, "Minnesota" is especially appropriate for Minnesota library collections, nature photographers, and wildlife enthusiasts. So well organized and presented is "Minnesota" that it would well serve as a template for similar nature photograph studies of other states and regions of the country."
