More About This episode

Soar over Minnesota, where the Mighty Mississippi begins and the blue Midwestern sky never ends. This aerial exploration of the North Star State whisks you across ancient glacial landscapes, iconic bodies of water, and the farm towns that have fed our county for over a century. From warring settlers and Indians, to battling flour titans, and from the massive Mall of America to the mythical Lake Wobegon, see how Minnesota is more than the "Land of 10,000 Lakes."
