Minnesotans have in the past century honored heroes and public figures, created mythic and heroic town symbols, funded abstracts on public streets and walkways, and now find themselves surrounded by a growing forest of sculpture carved by the chainsaw. Minnesota has more than 630 different pieces of outdoor sculpture, located in 150 different communities.

This is an indispensable guide to the big Bunyans, furrowed forefathers and 40-foot fish sculptures that populate Minnesota's blue highways. Art historian Moira F. Harris offers the history and mythology behind the creation of more than 630 pieces of outdoor sculpture located in 150 communities throughout Minnesota. Minnesota Monthly
