Summary (From the publisher):

In a book that is destined to become an American classic, Garrison Keillor tells the story of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota (pop. 942). With almost utter honestly, he chronicles the town's history, explains its traditions (including the Living Flag and the Sons of Knute Ice Melt contest), and gives the complete scoop on all the local celebrities, from Ralph of Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery to Dorothy of the Chatterbox Cafe.

Filled with warmth and humor, sadness and tenderness, songs and poems, Lake Wobegon Days is an unforgettable portrait of small-town American life, of why "we are what we are" and why "smart doesn't count for much."
