Synopsis: Written from the perspective of a 21st century German immigrant to the U.S., this collection of stories by Edith-Maria Redlin recounts firsthand impressions of South Dakota, a state that even in modern times retains vestiges of a frontier worth exploring. Although her introduction to western South Dakota includes an obligatory stop at Wall Drug and other tourist attractions, the author most enjoys her exploration of the natural Black Hills. She hikes the hogback wilderness that runs through Rapid City, explores the network of trails in the higher elevations and seeks out natural wonders frequently missed by the casual tourist. Each story is written in clear and straightforward prose, as though for family members back home in Germany. Join her in her search for "Hippie Hole," the ideal swimming hole fed by a waterfall. Experience the wildflowers of spring along the Centennial Trail, and walk through the tunnels of the Flume Trail. In addition, the reader learns something of the gold rush days and the characters who shaped South Dakota history. Drive with her through the Pine Ridge Reservation, the Badlands and to Devils Tower across the border in Wyoming. The book opens the door for explorers of all ages who would like to know South Dakota better.
