Any Minnesotan worth his lutefisk has heard of the Kensington Runestone. But have you heard of Victor Setterlund? In 1949, he uncovered another runestone less than ten miles away. How about young Phoebe Omlie? In 1921, she set a world parachute record, stepping off the wing of a biplane 15,200 feet above the Twin Cities. How about Jean Webb? In 1963, the Minneapolis teen risked arrest and refused to leave a segregated restaurant in Arkansas. These off-beat and inspiring stories, along with dozens more culled from Minnesota newspaper archives, are presented in their original form, along with photos from the Minneapolis Tribune, Minneapolis Star, St. Paul Globe, the Minnesota Historical Society and other sources.
