Books about Minnesota: Why they annoy me

Virtually all books about Minnesota annoy me, and it's getting worse. Take this seemingly excellent book: Hiking Minnesota With Kids. What could be wrong with that?

For one thing, most Minnesotans live within a one hour drive of the Wisconsin border. I don't want a "Hiking Minnesota with Kids" book, I want a "Hiking Minnesota and Wisconsin with Kids" book, or a "Hiking within 300 miles of the Twin Cities book".

I'm going to start boycotting all MN or WI only books, and buy every MN/WI book I see.

I can't be the only TC resident in a snit about this ...

PS. Some of the best hiking and around the TCs is in western Wisconsin ...
