Palaces on the Prairie

by Rod Evans. North Dakota Inst. for Regional Studies. 2009. 242p. illus. $29.95 + $4 s/h.


Evans takes the reader through Midwestern communities as they struggled to survive the crises of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He focuses on one of the ways community leaders elevated themselves: constructing palaces decorated with the grains or minerals that would best promote the businesses and products of their towns.
