Ordinary Legends: People from Lake Crystal, Minnesota 1900 to 1950
by Maggie Jones
A book about a unique place – a town filled with Joneses, where the postmaster performed trapeze acts and the druggist gave parties for hundreds of children, where the school superintendent composed marches and a pair of identical twins created famous dolls. This book is about legacies and the fact that even when we may think our life is ordinary, we are remembered. These people were not ordinary, but most thought they were. They didn’t leave much to research; some didn’t even leave photos. What they left were imprints in the people’s memories.
