"The Legend of Minnesota" and the "Legend of Wisconsin" are among my first picture books. Both were written by Kathy-jo Wargin and published by Sleeping Bear Press. For the first one I tried to recreate the clothing and lodges of the mid 1700's as closely as I possible. With the second, I tried to combine a historical feel with a mythological twist - and a dash of playfulness thrown in for good measure.
