Crossroads: Every weekend this summer, vacationers from all over Minnesota and beyond its borders have packed up the family car and headed north to Highway 1. The highway cuts a jagged route across the top quarter of the state, from North Dakota in the west to the rocky shores of Superior in the east, through farmland, reservation, lake and lodge country.  Travelling the roads locals in Northern Minnesota use to capture stories, history, culture, land and people along the way. By producer Britt Aamodt.

The History of Finns: The first Finnish immigrants to arrive in Minnesota settled here sometime around the middle of the 19th century and the close of the Civil War. Minnesota quickly became one of the cultural homelands of immigrant Finns in America, and their legacy lives on today in last names--Niemi [NEE-me], Lahti [LAH-tee], Saari [SAR-ee]--town names (Esko, Heinola [HEY-no-la] and Finland, come to mind) and even a made-up saint, St. Urho, who, by the way, boasts his own celebration every March 16.  A five-part series exploring the history of Finnish immigrants in Northern Minnesota. By producer Britt Aamodt.
