MN Reads: "Secrets of the Loon" by Laura Purdie Salas and photographed by Chuck Dayton

Chuck Dayton has been taking pictures of loon families on his little lake near Ely for many of the 63 years he's been spending summers there.

So when he says "this is where my soul lives," you can see that reflected in every photograph of Secrets of the Loon.

Secrets of the Loonis published by the University of Minnesota Historical Society Press

"MNHS Storytime" video premiere for Secrets of the Loon on Monday, May 4, at 3 pm on the main MNHS Facebook page.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
