The authors comment on river conditions and the character of the surrounding lands from the headwaters at Big Stone Lake to the confluence with the Mississippi River in the Twin Cities. Companion stories provide historical information and highlight various citizen efforts to protect the river.

A Survey and Analysis of 24 Rivers in Minnesota: For the Purpose of Recommending Those Which Should be Considered as the Minnesota Recreational River System

Midwest Planning and Research, Inc., and St. Paul Office of U.S.G.S.
This survey of twenty-four Minnesota rivers, including the Minnesota, was conducted to determine physical characteristics and eligibility for inclusion in a state recreational river system. The study recommended that the Minnesota not be included in the system because the degree of development along its banks removed it from wilderness-river consideration and the nature of its flow meant that it is only intermittently canoeable.
