Product Description:

The northern plains are often ignored by the rest of the nation or, if not, are mentioned in the context of the weather, Mount Rushmore, or the Black Hills. However, North Dakota and South Dakota have a colorful past—and present—deserving of greater recognition.

Norman K. Risjord relates the remarkable histories of these two states, from the geological formation of the Great Plains to economic changes in the twenty-first century. Risjord takes the reader on a journey through the centuries detailing the first human inhabitants of the northern plains, the Lewis and Clark expedition, homesteading and railroad building, the political influence of the Progressive movement, the building of Mount Rushmore, and Wounded Knee II. Included are stories of such noteworthy characters as French explorer Vérendrye, the Lakota leader Red Cloud, North Dakota political boss Alexander McKenzie, and South Dakota Democrat George S. McGovern.

Despite the shared topography and the rivers that course through both states, the diverse reactions of the two states to the challenges of the twentieth century provide opportunities for arresting comparisons. This captivating look at the Dakotas’ geography, ecology, politics, and culture is essential reading for Dakotans and those interested in the rich history of this important region.

Product Description:
Elwyn Robinson's sweeping HISTORY OF NORTH DAKOTA has become one of America's classic state histories. It has been reviewed as "astonishingly comprehensive" and "fascinating." One of the state's great professors and historians takes into account not only politics, but sociology, economics, ethnology, theology, nature studies, and geography to describe North Dakota to the world and to itself.

Geography, in particular, formed the basis of Robinson's historical interpretation. His "too-much mistake," the belief that North Dakota built too much, too fast, in an isolated area buffeted by a difficult climate, has become the guiding principle for a quarter century of historical debate on Dakota plains history.

Long out of print, Robinson's 1966 work has now been reissued by the North Dakota Institute for Regional Studies at North Dakota State University, Fargo. Included are a new preface by UND history professor D. Jerome Tweton, and a new postscript by NDSU history professor David B. Danbom. Both recognized experts on plains history, Professor Tweton examines the themes and the time of Robinson, while Professor Danbom brings the state's history from the mid-1960s to the present. Also new in this edition are 41 photos and illustrations.

North Dakota: Counties - Towns & People: The Complete Edition

North Dakota: Counties - Towns & People: The Complete Edition
 
Product Description:
North Dakota Counties - Towns & People is a story of the counties, towns, and people of the Flickertail State. Unfortunately, time and space do not allow a more in-depth presentation. Instead, my approach has been to cover the lives of a select few of the early settlers, and the counties and towns they helped settle. Originally published in three parts, Part I in 2007, Part II in 2008, and Part III in 2009, North Dakota Counties – Towns & People won the 20th and 22nd annual G. K. Haukebo Heritage Resource Award in the Historical Emphasis Category.
My love affair with history, especially the history of North Dakota, had its beginnings during the early 1950s. I was, at that time, a student attending St. Leo’s, a parochial school in Minot, North Dakota. The subject being discussed was life among the Mandan Indians, as told through the words of early explorers. From that day forward, I have always had a special place in my heart for the history of North Dakota.
In the process of writing this story, I have used a variety of sources, including newspapers, letters, diaries, government records, W.P.A. records, and the memories of descendants. Together, these records allow us to roll back the hands of time to the early days of North Dakota.
Generally speaking, the names of Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks, Jamestown, and Minot are familiar names to many Americans. But what of the other cities, little towns, and communities scattered here and there across the fifty-three counties that make up the face of North Dakota.
Counties like Adams, Dickey, Logan, Oliver, Pembina, and Sioux; Towns like Cannon Ball, Center, Ellendale, Mountain, Napoleon, and Reeder; People like Pierce Blewett, Rose O’Boyle, Gottfried Hass, Thor Hauge, Capt. William Larrabee, Eva McCoy, Abraham Youngquist, to name but a few.
There are even those towns like Mineral Springs, Wamduska, and Wheelock that remain only in our memories—memories of a time now past; a time when the land first beckoned the homesteaders and town builders to come. Come and build a new life for you and your family here in the land of the flickertail.

Product Description:
During the early years of the 20th century, American families witnessed amazing changes in their daily lives―the arrival of plumbing and electricity in their homes, the first automobiles, and thanks to the Eastman Kodak Company, the first affordable, portable, photographic instrument, the box camera. Many families purchased the box camera (for $1) and began to document their own histories. It is upon these histories that North Dakota places its focus.
Nowhere were the changes so dramatic as on the Great Plains, and in the state of North Dakota especially. Due to the huge influx of immigrants, mostly from Scandinavia, the state’s population more than doubled from 1900 to 1940, roughly the period covered in North Dakota. But this was also a time of
hardship and struggle, as the Great Depression, the
Dustbowl, and war took their toll on North Dakota
families. But through hard work and perseverence, most of these families survived, and thrived, and now
share with us the story of that time.

Product Description:
The prospect of 160 acres of free land enticed thousands of Norwegians to immigrate to America, with high hopes for a better, more prosperous life. Those who settled in North Dakota never expected they would need several times that amount of land, nor did they imagine the high costs involved in meeting the homestead requirements. This is a story of two families for whom the promise of America miscarried. As they reached a point of borrowing money to move their dream forward the depression hit, as did a drought on the prairie. But the family spirits never died, and the immigrants never wished to be elsewhere.

North Dakota history and people; outlines of American history (1917)

Note from Author~ More intensely interesting than a fairy tale is the story of the development of the great Northwest. It is a story of adventure and of daring in the lives of individuals not unmixed with romance, for there were brave, loving hearts, and gentle clinging spirits among those hardy pioneers, and many incidents and choice bits of legend have been handed down, which I hope may serve to make these pages interesting.

A wonderful genealogy resource, includes portraits and biographies of hundreds of North Dakotans.

North Dakota Immigrants: Coming to America

North Dakota Immigrants: Coming to America
 
Product Description:
Dakota Territory in 1870 was still a sea of grass eagerly awaiting the plow share. Beginning in the 1870s, and lasting well into the early twentieth century, the newly revised territory began to attract more and more settlers. Thoughts of statehood grew increasingly stronger. The late 1880s would find that the population of northern Dakota had swelled to 190,000 residents, while southern Dakota had a larger share of settlers, totaling 340,000 residents. Beginning in the fertile Red River Valley region of present-day eastern North Dakota, and spreading westward to the Montana border, the Germans, German Russian, Irish, Norwegians and Swedes immigrants came to stake their roots.
