Compelling stories of Minnesota’s endangered species, the landscapes that nurture them, and the people who are discovering their secrets.

What can endangered species tell us about our part of the world? What can they tell us about us?

The elusive Canada lynx bears kittens in Minnesota’s northeastern woods. In the far southeastern part of the state, the succulent Leedy’s roseroot clings to cold cliffs. On the northwestern grasslands, the western prairie fringed orchid grows only on ancient glacial beach ridges. In the rivers of the Twin Cities metro area, the snuffbox mussel snaps on a fish’s nose to give its larvae a temporary home. These species and fifteen others living in Minnesota are on the federal Endangered Species List.

This book is an entertaining and educational journey through Minnesota’s diverse landscapes, one wild and rare inhabitant at a time.
