OF THE NORTH COUNTRY
'Pichaske (Southwest Minnesota State Univ.) offers an interesting exploration of how Dylan's early years in Minnesota influenced his songs and writings. The author is steeped in Dylan's voluminous compositions and other writings, and in the literary legacies of the Midwest, and he uses all this material to good effect. Adding a significant title to the corpus of Dylan studies is not an easy task, but Pichaske succeeds. Including helpful notes and an extensive but far from inclusive bibliography, this book fits into the literature of both popular music and literary studies.' --R.D. Cohen, CHOICE, September 2010.
