The creator of Lake Wobegon leads readers on a photographic tour of the real-life places that inspired his beloved imaginary Minnesota town. 100,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
In the twenty-seven years since Garrison Keillor first brought it to life, the town of Lake Wobegon has become a national treasure. Every Saturday night, when that unmistakable voice says "It has been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon," millions of fans of A Prairie Home Companion find themselves in the most famous small midwestern town (pop. 942) in America.
This book combines text and image to reveal the real-life origins of the place where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking and the children above average." Keillor meditates on the enduring culture of the county and on the years he spent there as a young writer and an outsider. And a short story of Lake Wobegon, "October," appears here for the first time in print.
