Sturgis Week

This week the Black Hills will come alive with rolling thunder as bikers from across America and many nations converge in Sturgis for a week of races, concerts, and partying with a carnival atmosphere.  It is also the 110th anniversary of the passing of Calamity Jane on August 1, 1903. She is buried next to Wild Bill Hickok in Deadwood, South Dakota. Learn more about the woman and the legend in James McLaird’s book “Calamity Jane”. Whether you’re planning a vacation, or have already been there, stop in to get travel books to learn more about the history and legends of this area. The region is filled with natural and historic wonders.  One of our books is “The Black Hills Yesterday and Today” by Paul Horsted.  It’s filled with dozens of historic photos of Black Hills area towns and landmarks matched with modern photos taken from the same camera points, to show remarkable changes and surprising similarities of the past hundred years. This book is sure to please anyone who loves the Black Hills and its history.
