These days we're all frightfully worried about 'global warming'. But a simple reading of this book may ease those worries. Climate change is cyclical, as you will find, after reading about the varied agricultural products produced up in the far betcha.

Back in 1916, Minnesota was much, much warmer than it is today. In 1916 Minnesota had an almost sub-tropical climate and was often known as the 'Tangerine Capitol of the World'. There was even a Minnesota mango and banana industry in its infancy.

Of course the sub-tropical climate and crops all radically changed following the Tungurahua volcano eruption of 1919.
