Letters bridge the distance for an immigrant family and those they left behind

South Dakota’s pheasant opener is this weekend (10/19/2013). 

 

Visit www.sdshspress.com to purchase the Mystery of the Pheasants, byauthors Mark Meierhenry and David Volk.

 

In the Mystery of Pheasants, Max and Hannah are about to go on their first pheasant hunt. They have taken their safety course, and they can’t wait to get out into the field. But there is much they don’t know about the Chinese ring-necked pheasant, and the twins’ grandfather has plenty to teach them before they load their shotguns for the first time.

Appropriate for young readers from first- to third-grade, Pheasants is a great present for your young hunter or hunter-to-be.  

"It’s a sweet story… . Meierhenry and Volk weave important anecdotes about our immigrant birds. Readers learn how pheasants were imported from China and first released on a Spink County farm in 1909, and how annual fall hunts have become nearly as important as Thanksgiving and Christmas for some families."South Dakota Magazine

Book of the Week: Order Sitting Bull, Prisoner of War at sdshspress.com by Friday and get $1 off

After his surrender at Fort Buford in what is now North Dakota, the United State Army transported Sitting Bull and his followers down the Missouri River to Fort Randall, roughly seventy miles west of Yankton. There the famed Hunkpapa leader remained for twenty-two months.

During that year and a half, Sitting Bull conducted tribal business, met with dignitaries and visitors, and interacted with those who imprisoned him. Dennis Pope has written a dramatic account of that time and those relationships. 

Sitting Bull, Prisoner of War fills a gap in the great chief’s story, allowing readers to explore a previously little-known episode of his life.
