Extended Description

This panegyric extols the beauty, abundant natural resources, and health- restoring environment of Minnesota, describing the state's regions and its many tourist attractions. It is directed towards those suffering from consumption (tuberculosis) and helps to explain why people in the nineteenth century regarded Minnesota's dry climate as a possible cure for that disease. The author also discusses methods of treating consumption through diet and clothing, and other locales of interest to sufferers, such as Florida, Nassau, and California.
