Dakota Territory 1861-1889: A Study of Frontier Politics by Howard Roberts Lamar
Yale professor Howard Lamar's study of this legendary swath of American plains has become a classic of Western history. First published some four decades ago, the compelling story of territorial power and intrigue still dramatizes the astounding confidence and rugged determination of this country's Old West pioneers. This political history of the Dakotas at their infancy offers readers a powerful picture of the politicians who carved a government out of a frontier and turned it into not one, but two huge states.
