We just received a notice of a newly published book about Henry Benjamin Whipple (1822-1901), the first Episcopal Bishop of Minnesota. By Anne Beiser Allen, the book is entitled And the Wilderness Shall Blossom: Henry Benjamin Whipple, Churchman, Educator, Advocate for the Indians, with a forward by James L. Jelinek, VIII Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota. (Click here to visit the publisher's website and order your own copy.)

(I can hardly wait for my copy to arrive!)
