Little Minnesota by Deane and Jill Johnson

Deane Johnson, Krista Rolfzen Soukup, Jill Johnson, Candace Simar

Nostaligia.  I love Nostalgia.  That’s probably why one of my favorite places is the little book store, Bookin’ It, located  in Little Falls Minnesota.  A perfect place to meet photographer Deane Johnson and author Jill Johnson, husband and wife and the collaborators of  Little Minnesota.  The Johnson’s and their book are delightful.  I’ve lived in several communities across Minnesota (South Dakota and North Dakota too, I might add) and loved looking at the beautiful photography and words within  this book that take a nostalgic look at Minnesota’s smallest towns with populations around 100.  Although I have never lived in the towns featured, I have been through many of them.  Thanks for sharing their stories, Deane and Jill!


  1. Thanks Krista,

    My husband Mark and I just complete seeing all 100 of the little towns you had in your book. We took your book with us to the towns and had someone sign their town page to verify that we were there.
    It took us about 6 years. We enjoyed meeting many wonderful people in each town. What an adventure
    we had thanks to your books.
