The Mammals of Minnesota was first published in 1953. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

For the many Minnesotans interested in the wildlife of their state and for anyone with a special interest in the fur or game animals or in the control of harmful species, this is a practical source of information. Schools will find the book useful in teaching natural history. All the mammal species identified within Minnesota are described, and keys to the classification are given, with careful instructions on how to use the keys. Step- by step directions include photographs of animals, diagrams of the methods described, and 70 maps showing the geographical distribution of species. The material is based primarily on the collections in the Museum of Natural history and the Division of Entomology and Economic Zoology at the University of Minnesota.
