Join the Dakota County Historical Society for our monthly book club, "Books From Our Shelves." Each book selected relates to an aspect of Minnesota history. 

January's book is "Gentle Warriors: Clara Ueland and the Minnesota Struggle for Woman Suffrage," by Barbara Stuhler. This book explores the final phase of the Minnesota women's struggle for the vote under the leadership of Clara Ueland. Ueland was a socially prominent wife of a successful Minneapolis attorney and mother of seven children, became president of the Minnesota Woman Suffrage Association in 1914, which was founded in Hastings, Minn.On the pages of this book, those committed suffragists who struggled on with such bountiful imagination, humor, dedication, and vision, take their rightful place in history.
