This is the first book to focus entirely on historical postcards from South Dakota, including images from more than 50 counties and 100 different communities.The book also explores how postcard images helped create and perpetuate myths about the Wild West, and how South Dakotans accepted and adapted those myths. Included are scenes of farming, ranching, industry, and small-town life from the early-1900s. While postcards pictured busy streets, town festivals, and new civic improvements, they also captured periodic disasters-natural and man made. Postcards show the development of important tourist sites from their earliest years, including the Black Hills, Badlands, Corn Palace and Mount Rushmore.

Residents and tourists alike will enjoy seeing South Dakota before interstates and billboards took over.
