At the Bend in the River: An Illustrate History of Mankato and North Mankato

Lundin, Vernard E
This history examines the development of Mankato-North Mankato from 1852 to 1990, with a concentration on industries, businesses, churches, schools, institutions, organizations, culture, public health, and recreation. A chapter entitled "The River Is Conquered" addresses the issue of flooding by the Minnesota River, and Mankato's various efforts at flood control culmination in the construction of a system of walls and dikes in 1987. Numerous photographs illustrate the text, and a brief bibliography is appended.
