Home is the Range offers a unique perspective on Depression-era life on the Minnesota Iron Range. Illustrated with images from the Minnesota Historical Society and treasured family photographs, the book chronicles Raymond A. Newman's formative years among the families that came to work in Northern Minnesota's famed iron mines. While the men worked in the mines and the women ran the households, Newman and his friends — when they weren't doing odd jobs to help support their families' meager budgets — managed to find plenty of ways to get into trouble.
