Hi there ... many Minnesota counties have a "history book" of sorts ... for example, Yellow Medicine has the Arthur Rose book, "The History of Yellow Medicine County," published in 1914. And most counties have a legislative (I think) commissioned book from the 1890s or thereabouts. What I am seeking is such a book for Lyon County, preferably original but otherwise reprinted, and at a reasonable price. I would appreciate any directions in which you are able to point me ... thanks ... Dean Vik
