The Minneapolis Star Tribune (Sunday, August 10, 2014 edition) contains an article written by columnist James Lilek in the “twin cities + region” section under “around the state.” If you still have the newspaper, you can find it on page B3. You will see my photo and a short article called “My Minnesota: Ren Holland Dun-Gud collecting Minnesota resort names.” It is a take off on some of the strange resort names that have come and gone. My thanks to James for drawing attention to my book and early resort history.

You can also read his Star Tribune article by clicking here.

Dozens of other unique resort names can also be found in an earlier blog post of mine, “From Tom’s to Kee-Nee-Moo-Sha: What’s in a Name?” (click here).
