The definition of the word "Minnesota" is known to most as the Dakotah word for "sky-tinted waters." However, in her research about the origin of the state's name, acclaimed author and native Minnesotan Kathy-jo Wargin uncovered a little-known, but age-old, Ojibwe tale. The Legend of Minnesota tells the story of an enduring friendship between an Ojibwe girl and a Dakotah boy, and how their kindness toward one another gives the beautiful land of Minnesota its name.Author Kathy-jo Wargin has won acclaim for many of her children's titles -- including the bestselling Legend of Sleeping Bear and The Legend of the Lady's Slipper. Kathy-jo lives with her family in Petoskey, Michigan. David Geister specializes in historic art, has a background in commercial art, and frequently works on commission for an ever-growing number of private collectors. This is his first children's book. David lives with his family in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
