On the Road Again

This is not a blog post, it’s a preview of coming attractions.

It took us five hours to reach the trip’s first historical marker.

My Own True Love and I are back on the Great River Road.  Today we reached the banks of the Mississippi and are ready to take up where we left off. While part of the charm of our adventures on the Great River Road is discovering the unexpected, here are some stories I think you’ll be seeing:

  • Norwegian immigration into the upper Midwest
  • The geology of the Driftless area (a small patch of Iowa and Wisconsin that was not touched by the glaciers)
  • Laura Ingalls Wilder

I’ll keep you posted.  In the meantime, don’t touch that dial.

Last week, the universe slapped me up the side of the head twice about the fact that I’m not very good at promoting my newsletter.  For those of you who don’t know, in addition to writing posts about history tidbits, book reviews and road trips twice a week here on the Margins, I also write a newsletter.  It comes out twice a month and the content is completely different than what I post here.  Instead of telling stories from history, I explore the who, what, when, and how of writing history.     Here’s a link to the most recent issue, with a place to subscribe if you’d like to see how the sausage is made: https://mailchi.mp/ec2b22bb5998/thinking-about-creativity-again-still?e=141f8f248e
