Local History Books on South Dakota

As those who call it home can certainly tell you, South Dakota is one of a kind. It’s the home of iconic Mount Rushmore, largely considered the world’s greatest and most noteworthy mountain carving. It’s the home of all three divisions of the Sioux nation – the Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota tribes. Its Custer State Park is home to a massive herd of 1500 free-roaming buffalo, as well.

Regional interest and local history books can teach you even more about the Mount Rushmore state.
