Reviews - What do customers think about Minnesota Waterfalls?
Somewhat disappointing Sep 24, 2007
This book is a survey of Minnesota waterfalls, giving pretty much equal time to each section of the state.
Therein lies the first problem - all but a handfull of Minnesota's most important waterfalls lie within a few miles of Lake Superior, so I am not sure of the validity of the premise of the book. Too many of the waterfalls listed here are really insignificant, even if the locales themselves may be very lovely.
Secondly, the authors write in a very flowery style, often resorting to repeating the same cliched phrases. I know some readers will find this vivid and appealing, but to me it is distracting and irritating. The trick for a book like this is to find the right balance between dry commentary and "purple prose."
The North Shore waterfalls of Minnesota merit a book of their own, and indeed they have one in another book, Waterfalls of Minnesota's North Shore, by Eve and Gary Wallinga, which is admirably informative and very well written.
